WHAT’S HAPPENING IN THE AREA – JUNE EDITION 2
Posted by Kalli Pasqualucci on 14 Jun 2018
Hello to all the Epsom and Ewell families!
Over the last 2 weeks my boys and I have been making the most of the gorgeous weather that we have been having lately and have been walking a lot more. We absolutely love exploring the woods of Nonsuch, rolling down the hills and eating ice cream at the mansion area and looking at the flowers, insects and trees in the Rose Garden. And we have just got a letter through our door today about the Museum – you learn something new every day. Will have to check that out next. Also this month I went to Ladies Day which was great fun and I highly recommend you go if you’ve never been before.
Now over the next 2 weeks there is something for everyone. Enjoy!
This Saturday, 16th of June, is another Vintage & Vinyl Fair in Epsom. Starting at 11am. There will be a LEGO creation station, arts and crafts and a slime making area. With proceeds going to Age Concern.
