​GRANGE MOOR

COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION




As 2023 draws to it’s close we are going to take look back on the year, which for us has been the first full

year of “normal” events and activities since 2019, after which Covid changed a lot of things




Firstly, we would like to say a big thank you to you, the residents of Grange Moor, who have supported us in so many ways this year. It has been a great year for us and thank you for sharing this with us




Our Residents Lunch Club has taken off and we end the year with the highest number of Members since we launched this nearly 3 years (interrupted of course by the Covid Pandemic!) We have had 4 Resident Lunches this year including what has now become a resident favourite, The Residents Christmas Lunch which in 2023 became the first of our resident lunches to become fully booked in advance, taking just 4 days to fill all the places available!




Membership is open to all residents, but is particularly aimed at those who are around the village regularly during the week




Our pride and joy is perhaps, our Community Fish & Chip deliveries, started in June 2020 as a one off, we have now made 27 deliveries and are planning further deliveries in 2024.




The Community Fish & Chip deliveries are open to all Grange Moor residents, at no cost as we have secured funding which will currently take us to September 2024.




We encourage residents to nominate someone who they feel would appreciate the delivery of a hot meal, residents can of course request a delivery for themselves




We deliver to residents’ homes within the main built-up area of the village, thanks to a fantastic team of volunteers




We have, of course, to give a huge thanks to George & Kayla at Grange Moor Fisheries who have been a great support since we first raised the idea with them back in the depths of lock down




Coffee @ The Pavilion is now firmly established as regular monthly coffee morning and we invite any one who is around during the week on the third Wednesday of each month to join us for coffee, conversation and company with invited guests sharing with us




Our Race Day in October is now re-established as a regular event and a great fun afternoon out helping to raise funds for both ourselves and the Bowling Club




In 2024 we are already looking forward to a number of other events that we hope you will join us




We are planning 4 Resident Lunches and 8 Community Fish & Deliveries




In April we will be holding a fund-raising Coffee Morning for The Forget Me Not Childrens Hospice


In June we will having the formal “Opening Ceremony” for our Miniature Memorial Park




In July we will be once again welcoming John Lyte for another History talk

WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT OUR PLANS? Then sign up for our resident monthly update e-mails




The Community Association Meetings are held on the first Tuesday in the month (Autumn & Winter) and move to the first Monday in the month from April to September during the Bowling season. Meetings

are in The Bowling Club Pavilion from 7.30 pm




We would like to wish all our residents a very happy Christmas and every best wish for 2024 and look forward to sharing time with you next year
