WHAT’S HAPPENING IN AND AROUND THE AREA – JANUARY PART 2
Posted by Kalli Pasqualucci on 15 Jan 2020
We are almost through what feels like the longest month of the year. I hope that you have settled into the New Year and that you are keeping to you resolutions (if you’ve done them). I am so proud that I have been sticking to mine. If you need some tips on how to stick to yours, have a read of Stella’s blog.
We have had a fun start to the month: I won tickets to see the Peter Pan panto at Epsom Playhouse, went on a VERY long but very lovely walk at Boxhill, have been loving my training at FS Epsom, had two little trips into London town and had the most delicious food at a Good Evening Supper Club (Sudesh has some events coming up – have a look below).
There is a LOT happening in Epsom, Ewell and surrounding areas over the next fortnight. I hope that you find something for you and your family.
