Edward Bear

This is a special ‘club’ for the 0-5 year olds with their Mums, Dads, Grandparents and/or carers, centred round a large teddy bear called ‘Edward Bear’ . The idea originated from the Mothers’ Union in Chelmsford, and is open to anyone in Grange. The Club meets on the first and third Tuesdays in church for a short period of ‘worship’, and then moves to the Meeting Room for crafts, drinks and a time for play/chat.

Probus Club

Probus clubs worldwide work to provide regular gartherings to those retired or semi retired business or professional men who, in retirement, appreciate and value opportunities to meet others in similar cicumstances and of a similar level of interest. Each year the Grange Probus club make a donation to the school to buy books for our children with 100% attendance over the previous academic year.

Michelle Jurd Memorial Trust

The Michelle Jurd Memorial Trust was set up by Michelle’s husband Neil after her death in 2009. The charity raises money to promote adventurous training and extra curricular arts activities in local schools, and also gives money to service charities –including the RAF Benevolent Fund, Not Forgotten Association and the Gurkha Welfare Trust.  To date the charity has raised over £50,000 and very generously makes donations to local schools and to date this funding has been used within our school to fund our Castle Head Activity Day, Clogging Workshops and trips to Chillfactore – lots of exciting activities which perhaps our children wouldn’t take part in otherwise.  The MJMT Ball is taking place on 19th November in 2016 -please join us for a fun night and a worthwhile cause.

Grange Fell Care Day

Grange-over-Sands Fell Care Day, took place  across five woodland sites, and was  hosted by the Morecambe Bay Limestones and Wetlands Nature Improvement Area together with Friends of the Lake District.  Our Year 6 class were among the many volunteers who undertook a variety of woodland conservation work including coppicing, dry stone walling, path repair, scrub and invasive species removal to restore woodland habitats. The work will benefit a range of birds and plants, as well as rare butterflies such as High Brown and Pearl Bordered fritillaries, and the wax cap fungi.
