WHAT’S HAPPENING IN AND AROUND THE AREA – JUNE PART 2
Posted by Kalli Pasqualucci on 15 Jun 2019
Hello lovely people!
Well I won’t lie, I’m not impressed with this weather (I’m not sure anyone is, though), mid-June and days before my birthday. But such is life. Hope everyone had a really fantastic beginning to June – there has been so much happening in Epsom and Ewell. And the end of June is not slowing down. Here are some very exciting things coming up in the next fortnight – at Epsom and Ewell Families, we are very excited for the Yo Sarnie and Once Upon a Town’s Summer Party and Epsom Down’s Summer Night Rewind – have a look at Kat’s blog, for more information.
