WHAT’S HAPPENING IN AND AROUND THE AREA – SEPTEMBER PART 2
Posted by Kalli Pasqualucci on 17 Sep 2019
Wow, haven’t we been spoilt with the weather this week? We’ve had a very busy fortnight of activities. The Epsom Food Festival, Dee and I went to meet the cast of the Epsom Christmas Panto on Tuesday (you can read my blog here), and today my family and I visited the Cheam Celebration of Food and Drink and Nonsuch Mansion Open Day; to name a few activities.
