WHAT’S HAPPENING IN AND AROUND THE AREA – SEPTEMBER PART 1
Posted by Kalli Pasqualucci on 01 Sep 2019
We have reached the end of the Summer holidays, and I don’t know about you, but it is a rather bittersweet feeling for me. I have loved spending days (and days, and days…) with my children but I am also super excited to get back to the normality of life.
We got such great feedback about our Summer blogs, thank you! But I wanted to shout out one reader’s top pick for museums – one that I hadn’t heard of before and will definitely have to try out. The Haslemere Education Museum is free (donations are appreciated), has a real Egyptian mummy, outdoor fun, picnic area and activity room. Thank you, Carly.
I am really looking forward to September – there is a lot going on, and I have realised that September is definitely the month for any local foodies to enjoy. I hope that you find something for you and the family, in the next two weeks.

As always, if you would like to stay up-to-date on all things Epsom and Ewell, then make sure that you ‘like’ the Epsom and Ewell Families page or join the group. It is a wealth of information, advice and good vibes. And if you are looking for a local recommendation, then make sure that you visit the Epsom and Ewell Families’ directory. Dee is constantly updating the website with new businesses and services – all of which have been reference checked in a 3-step process.
Hope that back to school goes well! And good luck to all of the little ones (and their parents) who are starting school this year.
See you soon, for more local fun.
