Grange Meadow Plans Summer FunDay – An opportunity to enjoy Bletchingley’s Community Space
Grange Meadow Management Committee has announced plans to host a Summer Funday on Sunday 1st August in order to showcase the facilities at their site in the village of Bletchingley, Surrey and to support the local charity Bletchingley Skills Centre who provide life skills courses for adults with disabilities.
Chair of the committee, Mark Tantam, says “The planned event has a triple purpose. Firstly to bring some fun to the community after months of restriction but also to experience the advantages of the village’s often under utilised community open space while, hopefully, generating some funds for a very worthy charity based in the village.”
Grange Meadow has been held in trust as an open space since 1908 and houses a number of facilties. The site boasts a pavilion, an outdoor gym, exercise instructor, children’s playground, bowling green, basketball/netball pitch, skate ramp, football and cricket pitches and good parking . It can host events without the risk of disturbing neighbours while being very accessible.
Details are being finalised but the planned event expects to feature a penalty shootout competition hosted by local football clubs, an opportunity to bowl out a cricketer, taster sessions by the bowls, exercise and rifle clubs, children’s entertainers and tombola stands with refreshments available in the Pavilion.
“We expect to announce more details very shortly and also hope to have a celebrity or two joining in the fun.” says Mark Tantam “But it will be an opportunity to get the children away from their games consoles into our beautiful open space and perhaps for children and adults alike to discover new activities to enjoy”
