All of us are aware of the war unfolding in Ukraine and its impact on people's lives there, and here. Grange residents are always willing to support people in difficulty in our town and surrounding villages, and internationally. We are supporting Ukrainian people in a variety of humanitarian ways - doing what we can, when we can.
To date, there were quick collections of clothes, medicines, toiletries, children's items, sleeping bags and tents which were sent to central collection depots in the North West and taken to Ukraine.
Churches Together held a vigil at the Millennium Peace Pavement in the Ornamental Gardens on 12/03/22 to share thoughts and prayers for people suffering in both Ukraine and Russia.
Coming up is a fundraising concert with the band Black Sheep on Monday 28/03/22 from 6pm - 9pm in the Victoria Hall, organised by local, Polish resident, Ania, whose family in Poland are directly involved in charities working across the border with Ukraine to assist refugee families in need. This free concert is to say thank you to all the people who have already donated, and is also part of her ongoing fundraising efforts.
Please see our What's On page for more details.

Following today's announcement that we are in Tier 2, the Victoria Hall can look forward to welcoming back the small groups that had been using the hall before the November Lockdown.
We will open early December, with the same restrictions as before. Hope to see you all again soon.
Due to the new lockdown for November, the format for Remembrance Sunday will be as follows and not as given in Grange Now:
The poppy organisers will place the wreaths on the War Memorial first thing Sunday morning.
The Mayor will read out the names of the fallen and lay one wreath on behalf of the Town Council and the people of Grange at 11am and observe the 2 minutes silence.
On Wednesday 11th November, a member of the Royal British Legion will lay a wreath and observe the 2 minutes silence at 11am. The Royal British Legion Standard Bearer will be in attendance on both days.
If you have your own wreath or would like to pay your own respects, please do so outside of these times. Please be respectful of others and maintain social distancing at all times.
Hopefully we will be back to normal in 2021.
