The Grange Retreat formerly Willow Rise, are very much looking forward to our Grand Open Day 14.09.19 after an extensive refurbishment programme. We thought rather than just open our business quietly, why not turn it into a day for all the family? So our Opening Day will have all sorts of fun activities for you and the family to look forward to. Dogs are of course very welcome, they will have the opportunity to check out our kennels during our scheduled tours, there will be agility here for them to try and there will be plenty of fun competitions for them to enter here. It will be possible to buy both food & drink on site - even a glass of fizz if you fancy. There will be shopping stalls galore, and for the kids we are pleased to have both a pocket money stall and a bouncy castle! All money raised will go to local Cat and Dog rescues, so please do buy a ticket or two for our raffle! Top prize is worth £250! You have to be in it to win it! We look forward to seeing you there!
Cost: Free!

Eastern Angles Theatre Company presents Food Wars
Saturday 5th October 2019 7.30pm
Maldon Town Hall, Market Hill, Maldon   CM9 4RL
Two plays in one night explore the battle for bread that took place on your doorstep. Featuring two halves of story, it is a collaboration between Eastern Angles and New Heritage Solutions, which previously brought you Somewhere In England. Oh, What A Lovely Food War is a series of comic music hall sketches on the first introduction of food rationing in England as a result of the U-Boat War. Discover how you would have coped with the Great British Bake Off during First World War, with the perils of rationing and potato flour! Saving Our Bacon takes up the story in the Second World War, when pigs in blankets were something different and the black market was just around the corner. Real life memories have inspired the story of the often-forgotten struggles of the Home Front. Food Wars tours to Maldon Town Hall on Saturday 5th October at 7.30pm. http://bit.ly/FoodWars19
Cost: £12 full, £10 concessions (students/over 65)
