Letter from the Editor

‘Bring me sunshine,’ so the song goes. What better place to be at this time of year than right here where we live. Great views, friendly people and a stunning countryside to enjoy. The promenade is a beautiful place to walk along, but the saltmarsh beyond is downright dangerous. With the recent sunny weather, there have been a number of people heading out beyond the grass and of course where one person goes, others will follow. With the school holidays just around the corner it is worth passing on this quote taken from The Bay Search and Rescue facebook page, relating to an incident that happened only yesterday. “At 14:54hrs today the team was paged by HM Coastguard with reports of a person and dog stuck in the quicksand at Grange-over-Sands. Three BSAR teams were deployed, along with Furness Coastguard and Arnside & South Lakes Coastguard Rescue Team. ...... a local resident who walks on the marshes and sands regularly, which just shows how dangerous the sands can be, even when familiar with them.” Talking of the bay, we finally managed to find an expert who can tell us what is really happening with the grass in the foreshore. Read all about it on page 8. Don’t miss the delightful photographs on page 13 which celebrate the many celebrations taking place at Cartmel Priory - congratulations to all of those involved. There are lots of other things to celebrate in this issue as you will see, not least the proposed work on the lido. Can it really be finally happening? Finally the date to put in your diary is Wednesday 2nd August for Cartmel Show. Bring me laughter, all the while... Chris, Glenn, Sarah and Sharon

Allithwaite pupils take all three top spots In a national ‘Design a Drone’ competition, which attracted over 1700 entries, pupils at Allithwaite Primary managed to take First, Second and Third place. Representatives from Amazon and the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), who organised the competition, visited the school on Wednesday 20th June to announce the winners. The winning entry came from Orrin, with Alesha and Iggy taking second and third. Parents of the winners were told beforehand and they turned up at school for the presentation but the children didn’t know anything about it until Av Raichura, from Amazon, and Jonathan Nicholson, from the CAA, announced the winners at a school assembly. The children were asked to design a model delivery drone using materials found in their everyday lives. The winning entries were chosen for their creativity, application of science and the benefit the drone would bring to society. Orrin’s winning design, was of a weather-proof ZIP drone which can fly at speeds of 70mph. It is made from recycled rubber and you download and use an app from your phone to order from it. His incredible first prize consisted of: £1000 cash donation to the school for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering,

Mathematics) resources, and a gift basket containing a Fire tablet and a basket full of STEM books and resources worth £200. Alesha and Iggy both won a basket full of STEM books and resources worth £50. As regional winner, Orrin now goes forward into the national competition and should his design win that round he and five friends will be taken on a tour of the Amazon Prime Air Lab, along with five friends.

Mollie celebrates her 102nd birthday Pictured here with Sarah McDonald from Bay Home Care and after a weekend visit from her grand and great grandchildren, Mollie enjoyed a quiet day with her daughters surrounded by flowers and good wishes from friends and family. Over the past few years Mollie has had huge support from some wonderful carers who have attended through wind, rain and snow, both day and night to help keep her comfortable at home in Grange. Now Mollie has a daughter with her at all times, the team of carers provide continuity and comfort. Though frail she remains young at heart and still enjoys a good song, always joining in and, if she forgets the words, happily making up new ones to fit the tune.

Investment Matters

Structural Engineers assess the lido

By Gary Richardson FCIB, APFS

We attended a seminar by Invesco Perpetual at the beginning of June with regards to global economies but with a focus on the UK. A very interesting element was the outlook for UK interest rates. As we know, Bank of England base rate fell to 0.5% in March 2009 over 8 years ago. It then fell yet further to just 0.25% in August last year. Invesco’s predictions for future movements were not inspiring:- a rise to 0.5% by the end of 2018 and to 0.75% by 2020. If that transpires then a generation of borrowers will have had over a decade of ultra- low mortgage rates and will never have it as good again. Sadly it is the exact opposite for savers. The use of monetary policy by government (interest rates and quantative easing) is reaching the end of its’ cycle with fiscal policy (tax and spending cuts) the next phase. Exactly how government addresses this we wait and see. From an investment perspective all one can do is be aware of the bigger picture but focus on your own situation and objectives. The comments in this Editorial are only general and should not be taken as specific advice. It is important that you seek independent advice before taking any action on the above, or any other, subjects. It should be noted that the value of some investments can fall as well as rise therefore you may get back less than originally invested. Past performance is not necessarily a guide to the future.

You may have noticed throughout June, that the former outdoor pool in Grange has had more people on-site than the usual weekly inspection that takes place. Grange Now contacted SLDC for an update to find out the latest. Structural engineers have been on-site to assess the structures and buildings, to document any further deterioration to the site.

This included pumping the water out of the vast sea tanks that sit under the old diving board structure, which were used historically to fill the pool, so that access could be gained to the tanks for the structural engineers to assess the site in its entirety, as well as the buildings on the periphery of the site.

A public consultation in January and February this year showed that more than 50% of residents and businesses in Grange wanted to see the site restored safely to allow access to the public, who have not been able to access the site since the pool closed in 1993.

The report will be finalised in late summer, which will form the basis of the next steps for the site, with the aim refurbish the buildings and bring the site back

The structural engineers team from RG Parkins will be looking for signs of further deteriorating structures, and specialist

Banners disappear again

into public access, without pool facilities which were deemed to be economically unviable in 2014.

concrete investigations are being carried out to ensure that hopes for securing the site for public access can be realised, with the aim of providing an update to the structural survey that was completed by the same team in 2013.

On Thursday 15th June, several banners were taken down from the railings beside Grange duck pond. The banners were rolled up and placed on the ground but a banner for the Prom Recreation Ground appears to have disappeared. Town Council are

searching the hedge before making a complaint to the police. The banners were in place on Thursday morning at 7.20am but had disappeared by 8am. If you know anything about this incident please could you contact Grange Town Council in the first instance.

It’s the halfway point for Jean

You’ll never rain on our parade

Earlier in the year, Grange Now published an article about local legend, Jean Malkin, taking on the challenge of swimming 70 tarns and lakes in this, her 70th year. Well she’s halfway there, with just 35 left to do before the 14th October (Jean’s birthday) deadline. Jean told Grange Now, “The record to date is 5 swims in one week, but it’s time for a holiday now, then back to it for the remaining 35. I would just like to thank my generous sponsors who have already donated to the two charities I’m supporting: Action for Children and ‘Jigsaw’ children’s hospice.” It’s not too late to donate, which you can do through Grange Information Centre or direct to Jean on 015395 34262.

Corey completes run for Christies Cartmel Priory pupil, and long time Grange Now deliverer, Corey Bacon, recently completed the Great Manchester Junior Run in 9 mins 38 secs. This was made all the more remarkable as Corey just recently had a plaster cast taken off his leg. Taking part in the run came about because he decided he wanted to raise

to The Christie for his treatment for quite a long time now and he can’t speak more highly of the brilliant care he gets from everyone there and I just want to help in a small way! My Uncle is incredible and I just want to do this in a way of thanking the people that help him. money for The Christie in Manchester as the hospital is treating his Uncle Gareth for leukemia. Corey had planned to raise £100 but soon surpassed his target and, as we go to print, the total stands at £955. Corey said, “My Uncle Gareth has been going

Since I planned to do this my Nananne has also found out she has cancer too and I hope the work The Christie does into cancer research can help her too! Thank you so much for any donations and for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page www.justgiving. com/fundraising/GemmaBrown41

Cordgrass at Grange – will it disappear? Cordgrass, or Spartina anglica as it is known to botanists, is a relatively new species which appeared as a vigorous hybrid in the 1800s, a cross between a small British type and an American cousin, brought in the ballast of ships to Southampton. Over the 20th century the plants spread northwards around the British coast, arriving in Morecambe Bay in the late 1960s. Then, the Kent channel was close to the shoreline at Grange and the depth of the channel ensured that no saltmarsh could develop. When the channels switched to the Silverdale side and began to erode the large saltmarsh there, beach levels rose on the Grange side and conditions were perfect for saltmarsh growth. Cordgrass, as a pioneer species, took advantage and rapidly expanded at Grange and Kents Bank, where the young saltmarsh extended nearly a mile from the promenade. As the sediment built up and sheep grazing began on the marsh, other species began to replace cordgrass and the biodiversity

Whatever you’re saving for, get your #savingssorted

2007 increased, with species like reed and club rush dominating areas towards Kents Bank and sea meadow grass creating a green turf, like the other grazed saltmarshes around Morecambe Bay. The fact that Grange was now no longer ‘over sands’ was a concern to local people, so South Lakeland Council and the then Nature Conservancy Council looked at the feasibility of controlling the spread. The result was a policy of ‘Working with Nature’, to look at the positives, which were that a new habitat had been created. Walkers on the old ‘sands’ will recall that the silt levels in the sand were such that it was not a pleasant experience to walk on the beach anyway. The saltmarsh was left to develop and sheep grazing was introduced.

The big days

2017 However, at the end of the 1980s the river channel began to cut back into the saltmarsh and a sharp erosion edge could be seen all along the front south from Holme Island. This has continued, until now there is only a 60-80 metre fringe of saltmarsh along the Grange shore, but still considerably more at Kents Bank and down to Humphrey Head. The areas to the south are unlikely to be cut right back to the shoreline, but at Grange it is possible that from the railway station to the baths there could be very little saltmarsh remaining if the rate of erosion continues. Air photos from the 1968 Huntings survey for the Morecambe Bay Barrage project show the main channel close to the shore all the way to Humphrey Head, so optimistically this could happen again. Some areas

of saltmarsh would remain in corners at Holme Island and Wyke farm. In conclusion, the river channel could complete its work and scour right back to the railway embankment. The downside of that will be the lack of beach on the Grange side and the loss of the tall plants such as reed and club rush which are potentially very attractive to birds. Grange will never have a truly sandy beach, because estuarine conditions favour a fairly high level of fine silt. In due course the Kent channel may revert to the Silverdale side and then the colonising grasses will return. This is part of the natural dynamics of the Bay.

An Excellent Choice....

“Found ourselves in Cark at lunchtime, and didn’t have anything planned so thought we’d try the Rose & Crown. Very good decision! Warm welcome, interesting menu, excellent beer selection... My chicken stuffed with Cumberland sausage and wrapped in smoked bacon with a creamy leek sauce and vegetables was delicious and my husband was very happy with veggie cannelloni served with garlic bread and salad. And the portions were huge! At under £25 with a drink each, it was good value. If we lived locally, it would be one of our regulars!” TRIP AVDISOR

Open air theatre at Brantwood

Don’t miss Cartmel Show This year’s action packed show will take place on Wednesday 2nd August, and there’s a few ‘firsts’ for this year’s event. Organisers are delighted to announce that local chefs, including Simon Rogan, will be cooking up some mouth watering delights in the food theatre. They are also delighted to welcome, for the first time, Beetham Nurseries.

This year, the ever popular touring company, Illyria, returns to Brantwood with two classic productions

Shakespeare’s “A Comedy of Errors” on Tuesday 25th July and Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Emperor’s New Clothes” on Tuesday 22nd August. The performances take place in Brantwood’s scenic lakeside meadow, and Terrace Café Chef, Ben Willan, will be preparing some delicious pre-theatre food for the event. Drinks will also be available before and during the performance. Gates open at 6pm and the performance starts at 7pm. Please bring your own seating or rug. Performances will go ahead whatever the weather so come prepared! Coniston Launch is providing a ferry service to Brantwood for both shows, and boat places need to be prebooked through Brantwood. Tickets are available from Brantwood 015394 41396 or online at

This year you can also hitch a ride to Cartmel with free transport from Cark Railway Station direct to the showground, where hopefully you will see a 1st, 2nd or 3rd pinned to your work in the Industries tent.

Grange now | JULY 2017 - Next deadline 14th JULY

This is the third year for the event which has proved so popular in the past that they have decided to donate some of the proceeds to a local charity called ‘Growing Well’ from Low Sizergh.

£1 of the £3 entrance fee will go to the charity. Organisers say that as well as selling plants, vegetables, fruits, cakes, cordials, sandwiches there will also be a raffle and, at the time of going to press, they are hoping for a license which will enable them to sell Pimm’s and wines on the day.

Open Gardens event

Just a reminder that we are organising another Open Gardens again this year on Sunday July 9th from 10am to 5pm. The theme this year is Town and Hidden Gardens – all the gardens are in central Grange with a walking trail around them. As parking is often difficult on Grange’s roads the tour of the gardens will be easy to access from Grange’s car parks – it is only £1.20 all day at Berners Car Park. Tickets will be available £4 in advance from TIC and £5 on the day from TIC and participating gardens. The garden trail will include Park Road Gardens and Sensory Garden where, weather permitting, there will be Music in the Park at 2pm. Refreshments and plants will be for sale at various gardens. We hope you’ll all come and support us as the funds raised are used to improve the gardens around town which I’m sure you’ll agree make Grange a special place to live and help attract visitors.

Judging for Grange in Bloom Awards will take place the week starting Monday July 31st. The actual day of judging will be dependent on the weather and commitments of the judges. We hope that as many businesses as possible will put up hanging baskets or floral displays. We realise that watering and feeding them can be a problem especially in hot or windy weather but as a general rule the larger the basket the easier it is to maintain and taking them down to immerse in a bucket of water helps. We are also hoping that shops will create floral window displays. The Hospice shop have already decided to do so and we will judge the window displays if enough businesses take part.


On 15 June, 16 Grange Ramblers set off on the Annual Coach Outing.

This year’s walk was a 7 mile ramble in Wensleydale from Aysgarth Falls to Castle Bolton and back. The walk started with refreshments in the cafe at the Aysgarth Falls Information Centre before setting off via the lower Falls and along the valley floor to Castle Bolton. A picnic lunch was taken close to the Castle with fine views back down the valley before setting off on the return leg to Aysgarth Falls via Carperby. The walk ended as it had begun with refreshments once again being taken in the Aysgarth Falls cafe.

Time for a ramble



Watch the weeds don’t snaffle away the moisture!

We are delighted to announce that as from next month Grange Ramblers are going to do a column featuring a ‘walk of the month’ giving details and photos of a walk you may like to try yourself.

July is usually the driest month of the year and, dependant on which forecast you read, this summer could be especially dry, so watering is of paramount importance this month. Keep on top of the weeds by hoeing so the the weeds don’t snaffle away the moisture. The sun’s heat shrivels the weeds away so there’s no chance of them re-rooting.

Brown Robin nature reserve We are currently working on a new management plan for the next 5 years and have recently undertaken fixed point photography around the whole reserve. This gives an insight as to how the reserve is changing over long periods of time. We may even use a drone, to help with mapping, for managing the woodland areas. We are also looking into expanding the coppice in the compartment to create more diversity.

The top fields are doing well with mainly Orchids spreading all over, and areas where we removed scrub are now replaced with more wild flora such as bird’s foot trefoil and pignut. A second report of a Grasshopper

warbler passing through is welcome news and highlights the importance of the reserve for migratory birds.

On a more serious note, one of the cattle on the reserve was recently mauled by a dog and had to be removed from site. We have put new signs on the access gates, but please, when visiting the reserve with your dog keep it on the lead, especially

during the summer months. On Sunday 16th July, weather permitting, I will be running a guided walk looking at all aspects of the reserve, but specifically the butterflies of Brown Robin. Booking is essential. Please call: 01539 816300 Tony Saunders hon res mgr.

Wanted: wonderful photos of Cumbria’s wildlife Have you taken some wildlife photographs that you’re really proud of and want to share? If so, why not enter them into Cumbria Wildlife Trust’s new photography competition? Your photo could feature in the charity’s 2018 calendar.

There are four categories in this competition: Cumbria’s red squirrels: One of our county’s most iconic and much-loved species, do you have a photo that show our native reds at their best? Cumbria’s flora: From hay meadows to woodlands, single orchids to a carpet

Whether it’s the wild and windy coast, peaceful woodlands, breath-taking fell-tops, or precious wetlands, send in your photos that capture the essence of Cumbria’s varied landscapes.

t c e f r e P The

Twelve winning photos will be chosen, all of which will feature in Cumbria Wildlife Trust’s 2018 calendar and the overall winner will also feature on the front cover of the calendar. The deadline for entries is midnight on Sunday 16 July. Please note photos should be landscape orientation (wide, not tall). For how to enter, and full terms and conditions, go to:

Mulches are a good way to keep as much moisture in the soil as possible. This can be old compost, grass clippings or even old newspapers. Wood chippings can be useful for this and are a great soil conditioner but they must be composted for a few months beforehand as they have a tendency to leach nitrogen from the soil as they break down and can affect your plants’ development. It might also be worth scattering a few slug pellets before you mulch as slugs and snails will seek shelter under the moist mulch oasis.

Water retaining gel can be useful if you incorporate a couple of sprinkles into the soil when planting out, it can be especially useful if you have tomatoes in hanging baskets as these tend to dry out very quickly and will need to be watered twice a day otherwise. Follow the instructions. Is can be tempting to add a couple of extra scoops but if there is a downpour you can find your seedling wobbling around on top of a spawny, wobbly jelly. In some countries gardeners leave small depressions around the base of their shrubs for any rain or water to pool around the plants so this could be a good idea to try around your soft fruit bushes or trees.

Whatever measure that you decide to take none of them can save you from having to water at all so when you do make sure you do it effectively. If you have a hosepipe at your allotment try only to water in the cooler part of the morning or in the evening. If you’re restricted to using watering cans get an extra one or borrow one from a neighbour and cut your number of journeys to the tap by half unless you’re training for an arm wrestling championship or require one particularly long arm for some reason.

Crop for the Shop This month sees the launch a new initiative at Low Sizergh Barn: Crop for the Shop.

We’re looking for home, school or allotment growers who have an overabundance of fresh produce and want to avoid wasting any of their harvest by bringing spare fruit, veg, herbs or flowers to us. And it doesn’t have to be huge amounts, it could just be a couple of cabbages. In exchange for their lovely produce we’ll give them a gift card, which means a well-deserved break from digging and the chance to enjoy a treat from the farm shop shelves or a cuppa and a slice in the café. It’s a great way for local shops like us to source even more fresh, seasonal produce that’s grown right on our doorstep.

And there are other benefits to the scheme too:

Why Saltmarsh Lamb will always be a Seasonal Product It’s uncommon these days to come across truly seasonal foods since the supermarkets can now source most fresh produce year-round, from across the globe. There are a few exceptions however, Saltmarsh Lamb being one of them. It’s around the start of June that our customers begin to enquire about when Saltmarsh Lamb will be available – which we, as butchers love – as it shows a genuine appreciation of a quality product that is eagerly anticipated as the season approaches.

1. Cutting down on garden wastage and seeing even mis-shaped vegetables put to good use

We love this recipe Idea for Roasted Morecambe Bay Saltmarsh Lamb Leg:

2. We can offer our customers a wider range of the freshest possible produce on our farm shop shelves and café menu

• 4 x garlic cloves, finely chopped

Wet Rub:

• 1tsp dried chilli flakes

3. Food miles are kept low and there are no chemical sprays on the veg due to a growers’ agreement

• 4 x salted anchovies, finely chopped

4. Hand grown crops are often far more exciting than commercial crops - unusual or heritage varieties are sure to appeal to our customers

• Salt & pepper

Full details of how the scheme works and how prices are decided can be found on our website. If you’d like to get involved, please let us know by calling Rachel on 015395 60426 or emailing

• 4 mint sprigs, chopped

• 1 lemon, zest and juice

The reason why our Morecambe Bay Saltmarsh Lamb remains a seasonal product is down to the nature of the shore land on which the lambs graze. Compared with “regular” fertilised meadow grazing, estuarine shores contain a lighter density of wild, nutrientrich plants and herbs that are subject to tidal conditions. This natural diet in turn results in slower growing animals that need longer to mature before becoming ready for consumption. The meat produced is a light, sweet and distinctive product that is 100% Cumbrian and seasonal. Combine the wet rub ingredients and coat the joint all over. Leave to marinate for 2-3 hours. When ready to cook, pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees. Pour a good glug of extra virgin olive oil all over the meat then place in a heavy-based oven tray and pan-fry on a mediumhigh heat until coloured and caramelised. Place in the oven to cook until blush pink in the centre. Enjoy!

Our Morecambe Bay Saltmarsh Lamb sourced from local farms is available from June to late autumn. Find out more about this special local delicacy by collecting one of our leaflets in-store! DON’T MISS: Our Deli Picnic Packs are available to order in-store now! £20 includes a carry-away, two course gourmet Picnic for four people, perfect for the Races, Cross-Bay walks or a just a day in the Garden!

Please note: we may occasionally have to say no to your produce. If we already have high quantities of something we will politely refuse it in order to avoid any unnecessary food waste – Rachel is our key contact, and is happy for you to email or ring to check what we have or need.

Grange Town Council

Bookshelf The Children’s Summer Reading Challenge will be starting on Saturday 15th July and will run until September this year.

All councillors were in attendance for the full town council meeting on Monday 12th June. District Councillor, Mary Wilson, said that following a Health & Safety review there will be changes to some resident’s bin collections. Those affected will be informed in writing by South Lakeland District Council (SLDC). During the ‘Have your Say’ Section, Roger Handley, the Chairman of the newly formed Friends of the Victoria Hall Group laid out the group’s plans, once the Constitution had been adopted. The group will work closely with Grange Town Council and the Victoria Hall Manager. At a later point in the meeting, Cllr Tom Harvey reminded councillors that SLDC had undertaken a £10,000 Locality Study in respect of Victoria Hall, the results of which are expected in September. Cllr Harvey did say that the study may come back and say that a ‘Friends Group’ is the best way forward but councillors needed to be mindful of this forthcoming report. Cllr Harvey then proposed that the Council approve the Constitution. This was voted on and duly Resolved. Cllr Joanna Greenway informed councillors that positive developments have already come out of the proposed

Neighbourhood Plan (NP) with Holker Estates discussing their plans for their proposed site at Kents Bank with members of the NP committee.

“The increase arises out of increased street lighting charges. In particular one street light in Edenmount Road had to be entirely replaced at a cost of some £1500. Street lights are in the ownership of either CCC, SLDC or the local parish/town council (in this case GTC) which can be difficult to follow. These charges relate to lamps in the ownership of GTC. Similar charges have occasionally been made in the past, but this increase is unfortunately a large one. I am sorry that there was no advance warning to GTC about this increase”.

Tim’s Column

County Matters

The new administration at the County Council will be a Lib Dem / Labour alliance with support from a few independents. This, of course, ignores the fact that The Conservatives achieved the largest number of votes ahead of the Labour and Lib Dem votes together. The party has the largest number of seats but hey that is what happens when there is no clear majority for one party. We are determined to hold this new administration to account for their actions over the next four years. On a more positive note the parishes including Grange Town Council have met with the Saturday Bus provider of the 532 service and have agreed to subsidise this service for another 12 months. I must thank these parishes for their support and community involvement which will benefit the residents and tourists in the Cartmel Peninsula. I have been trying to catch up with all the questions and requests residents have mentioned to me over the last few weeks and hopefully I have picked all of these up. If I have not contacted you please let me know. My contact details are 015395 32482 or email on Kindest regards Bill Wearing Conservative County Councillor Grange Division

I am going to be brutally honest with you and say that I don’t have a great deal to report on in my Grange Now column this month. The past couple of months have been so taken up with Elections that I confess that I have not been as focused on our campaigns as I could have been. In fact, to be strictly accurate, since May 3rd when Parliament was dissolved I haven’t even been your MP. But the election is now well out of the way and I am so honoured and grateful to be re-elected as your MP. I promise to do all I can to justify your faith in me and to work as hard as I can for your needs, whether you voted for me or not. You may well have heard that I have also resigned as leader of the Liberal Democrats. There were a number of reasons for this that I am sure you don’t want me to go into in Grange Now. But the long and short of it is that I am really pleased that this will allow me to spend much more time here working with you and our local councillors to get this area the best in health, education,

housing, jobs and all the many other things we all know are needed. My very firm plan is to spend much more time sleeping in my own bed in Milnthorpe than I do in my tiny flat in London. That is what I have promised Rosie and the children so I can’t see that I will be allowed to go back on it. Not that I want to. The down side for you is that you are going to be seeing a lot more of me around the area. I allowed myself a few days with my family when the election was over but we were out knocking on doors within a week of the election asking people what were the local issues they were concerned about. Much to my relief everyone we met seemed really pleased to see us and pleased that we were out without any election on the horizon.

We started in Kendal but don’t worry we will get to Grange and the surrounding areas very soon. If you have any issues please have them ready for when we knock or better still why not drop me an email or call the office? The email address is, as ever, tim@ and the phone number 01539 723 403.

Grange Methodist On 28th March, the Women’s Network at Grange Methodist Church, held their A G M.

The members of committee and officers, were all returned for the coming year, and then the main business was the distribution of funds.

It was decided that a gift be given to the Church, and the remainder of the funds would be divided between the Calvert Trust, Eden House, District Network and Chernobyl Children. These children come annually to enjoy a holiday, have medical

checks and dental treatment. This year, a new group of children will be visiting and they will come for five years. Network ladies have had a part in the past in the entertainment, when children could come and enjoy the delights of Grange and have a meal at the church.

The date for the Network Annual coffee morning was announced. It is to be the 2nd of August. Prior to that there will be an appeal, for goods to sell on the stalls and help manning the stalls. On Wednesday, 29th March, the Women’s Network organised a slide show presented by Maurice Steele. Maurice is a retired farmer, with a wonderful eye for a picture and great talent for putting together an engaging show, with

music and commentary. This year his ‘Travels with a Camera’ featured many properties of the National Trust. We visited the nature reserve at Blakeney, Styal Mill and Apprentice House, and the Red Squirrel reserve at Formby. We saw the apparently tumbling down Tudor Speke Hall, Liverpool and the very tree from which Isaac Newton saw the apple fall, the home of William Morris of motor car fame and many more places with interesting histories. Afterwards, ladies served a delicious buffet supper which added to the success of the evening. Proceeds from the show are for the North West Air Ambulance; we shall know the amount later.

Churches Together in Grange & District One of the topics which the Churches in the area are concerned with is their work amongst young people. Accordingly, a ‘Youth Trust’ was set up, funded by the churches and individual donations. This was set up in 2006, run by Trustees, now under the leadership of Chris Mason, the Diocesan Network Youth Coordinator. After some time, when funds allowed, Chris’s work has been helped by other youth leaders. Currently, Libby Cuthbertson, an experienced youth worker and outdoor

St Mary’s It has been quite an eventful month at St Mary’s. On the last Sunday in May we were privileged to have a visit from Roger Jones of Christian Music Ministries, who, with a group of instrumentalists, led the worship at our morning Communion service which was much appreciated. On June 9th we hosted a community family fun night complete with bouncy castle

activities Coordinator, making up the team, along with voluntary helpers. They maintain work at Cartmel Priory School with worship, and a Christian time lunch club, as well as visits to the primary schools.

A Friday evening group meet at the Methodist Church, and is growing, along with supporting their Sunday morning ‘Toast Church’. At St. Mary’s Church, ‘Rock Solid’ takes place in Allithwaite; there is also the possibility of another venture at Flookburgh, developing out of ‘Flook4Youth’. But more volunteers are needed

and a variety of outdoor games available for all age groups. In spite of atrocious weather the previous and following day the rain held off and the sun shone on the 60-70 adults and children who enjoyed the BBQ and drinks provided. The following Monday another after school Messy Church with a seaside theme was enjoyed by around 40+ children - both in and out of doors - with various water related activities and finishing with an outdoor picnic

for this to take off.

All of this work helps in forming good relationships between school staff, local churches, and encouraging and supporting young people in their faith as well as forging community links between the various age groups.

Lifting the Veil on Boarbank

By Matron A big thankyou to everyone who braved the weather and attended the coffee morning, it was lovely to meet so many of you.

We are looking forward to welcoming our new activities co-ordinator and I’m sure she has some wonderful things in store for our patients. I would like to say a special thank you to our former activities co-ordinator; Joan. She has been working at Boarbank for many years, first as a staff nurse and then with activities. We’re sad she has stepped down but grateful that she is still able to visit us. She is, without doubt, a very special lady who I am proud to be able to call a friend. We are starting to fund raise for the nursing home so if anyone has anything they would like to offer: time; ideas; raffle prizes, please get in touch. Telephone: 015395 32288

It was lovely as my final show with them was also Jack and the Beanstalk where I played Jack so I came full circle. When and what was your first leading role? More of a supporting role but I played Quakers in Aladdin and then the following year went on to play a princess. Other roles I played with Grange Panto include the Snow Queen in Snow Queen, Jack in Jack and the Beanstalk, Avarice in Snow White. I also was part of GAOS on and off from a young age (being the fiddler in Fiddler on the Roof when I was about 8). I also played Bet in Grange Amateur Operatic society’s production of Oliver, Susan in Calamity Jane and Louise in Carousel.

Artist of the month Grace Heap, Actor/Singer Grange born young performer, Grace Heap was no stranger to the stage when she took off on an eight month long tour of Spain and Portugal with the Clever Pants Theatre Group. Grace, now 21, started singing and acting at a very young age and Grange Now caught up with her following her recent concert, with Glen Giffney, ‘Resonance’. Tell us about the early years: I went to Grange Primary School, followed by Cartmel Priory School and then Ripley St Thomas Sixth Form in Lancaster. I have two half sisters but they are older and live abroad with their own families.

When did your love of performing start? I don’t remember ever not loving it. It’s always just something I have done. I took part in competitions from a young age and then started going to Stagecoach at weekends and began performing in shows, singing at concerts and I always loved going to the theatre with my mum. What was the first production you performed in? Grange Pantomime: Jack and the Beanstalk as ensemble. I joined as soon as I was old enough so this was my first show with them and I loved it.

When I was younger the stagecoach agency got me a few roles such as one of the children in Drowning on Dry Land when the tour came to Windermere. Which college did you attend and what was your audition piece? The Musical Theatre Academy (MTA) in London. I had to attend a full day audition with a full morning of dance and then acting and singing in the afternoon. I performed a monologue from Star Spangled Banner and the songs ‘With You’ from Ghost and ‘Far Away’ from Blitz. During my time at The MTA I

Taking Steps was a triumph On the night that we were all reeling from the fact that the snap election had produced a hung parliament (Friday 9th June), I went along to see if Grange Drama’s latest production could cheer me up. Under Director, Deborah Powell, the group tackled Alan Ayckbourn’s theatrein-the-round production, the farcical, ‘Taking Steps’. When it’s done properly, it’s a ‘laugh a minute’ show and I’m delighted to say Grange Drama did it properly! I, along with the rest of the

played roles such as Phaeax in Welcome to Thebes, Faith in The Venus Factor and Fairy Godmother in Cinderella. Other shows I did while I was there were Around the World in Eighty Days, Sunshine on Leith, two shows cases and two musical theatre revues. When I graduated from MTA, I had done nine public productions (a one week run of a production at the end of every term) and was delighted to sign with Simon & How Associates (Agency) The recent tour you were on: Who, Where, What and how did you get the part? The tour was around Spain and Portugal for eight months with a Theatre in Education company called Clever Pants. We did four shows; two children shows ‘Tall Tales’ and ‘Danny Daydream’ and then parody/ comedy versions of the classics ‘Romeo and Juliet’ and ‘Pride and Prejudice’ for older children and adults. I was in a small team of just three of us: two boys and me so there was a lot of multi rolling involved and not much time off stage. We would sometimes do four shows a day, often in different venues. Long days and lots of driving but lots of fun too. I got the job through audition. What’s next? Having just returned from the concert in Grange, I am currently auditioning for a variety of roles.

Flookburgh Primary We have had a very busy start to our summer term, and the one place where we haven’t spent much time is in school itself!

To take advantage of the good weather, we have all been out enjoying trips and sporting events. Class 1 have enjoyed a fun-filled day or activities in Cartmel woods. Class 2 have been to explore the grounds and history of Holker Hall. Class 3 have brought their topic work to life by visiting the Roman remains at Birdoswald up on Hadrian’s Wall, and Class 4 have ventured even further afield with their trip to become World War II refugees at Beamish Museum, County Durham! Our children have enjoyed several sporting events in the local area. Our team of four children from Year 4 recently excelled to win their Tennis Tournament at Ulverston Tennis Centre. This means they will move on to play at the next stage in Carlisle on 12th July! Other teams have done similarly well in the Grange Lions Football tournament and the local cluster Rounders tournament at Cartmel Priory School.

Grange Preschool We have been learning about our local surroundings this half-term including: writing and posting letters; planting and watering our beans and sunflowers; worm charming with Grange Outdoor Club; cooking in our Nature Kitchen, talking on our Forest Phone and drawing on our Seaside-themed Chalkboards, which are new resources from the Co-op Community Fund grant. We have also purchased sensory materials such as Skwooshi and Kinetic Sand (the adults love these as much as the children!) If you re-register your Co-op membership card, you can support us in raising money for updating our electrical items. You can also donate cakes or help sell them on our Refreshment Stall at the Historic Vehicle Rally, Sunday 13th August. Our next Nearly New Sale for maternity/baby/children’s clothes/toys/equipment will be in September. We have visits planned to the Fire Station and Grange Nursery as well as a Sports Day and Teddy Bears Picnic. Our next Open Mornings are on Monday 3rd July and Friday 14th July from 9.15 to 11.15 for families with children from toddling to 3 years.


Allithwaite Primary

The School Council organised and ran a ‘school talent show’ and what amazingly creative children we have. The job of choosing the winners from KS1 and KS2 was not an enviable one as the standard was so high.

There will be a walk round Kendal on July 25th with Trevor Hughes. The speaker,Tracy Wells, a milliner, was unable to come at short notice, so each member “modelled” the hat she had brought and told its story. A general knowledge quiz filled up the spare time. Next meeting: July 11th Speaker Simon Thomas on “The staff of life”. Visitors welcome. Tel 52302 Grange Ramblers 25th May 13 Ramblers started from Legburthwaite 800ft ascent to High Rigg. A leisurely lunch break taken on top the Fell enjoying views to Skiddaw, Blencathra, Bassenthwaite before descending to St John’s church, a minutes silence in respect to the Manchester atrocity. Returning via east Fell, a teashop refreshments to completing the walk. 10 Ramblers spent 4days walking break at Rambler’s chalet -Golden Walker in Newland valley, different walks each day to suit everyone, blessed with 4 glory days, some managed sunbath at the top of hill, some conquered 10 Wainwright hills, each day ended with social able evening in local pub. 18th May 8 walkers set off from Swan Hotel Grasmere​ , followed the Far Easedale valley to admiring the surrounding fells and waterfalls, a break overlooking a waterfall before ascending to Calf Crag. Lunch on a sunny sheltered spot with distant vistas. A super ridge walk over Gibson Knott to Helm Crag before descending to start point. 1st June 18 ramblers and a dog started from the square of Broughton-in-Furness to walked the 9 miles Thornthwaite Latter Rigg and High Rosthwaite with views of Coniston Old Man and Caw, walk completing with refreshments taken at pub in the square. Grange Rotary The Club enjoyed a fascinating presentation on 24 May by our very own Ted Taylor’s daughter Kathy Haughton on “Life in Uganda” with all its trials and tribulations. In the Rotary Young Photographer of the Year competition(Junior Section) we had a District winner from Cartmel Primary School On 13 June the renowned annual Kids Out event took place where two of our members escorted children,with varying disabilities and accompanied by their teachers,to Lakeside for a sail to Bowness. Our members were duly waiting for them at their Bowness destination to drive them safely back to their Kendal School.A great day out was had by all,which could be seen on the smiling faces of the happy children - a most worthwhile event. The District 1190 RotaKids Conference took place on 16 June at Lancaster University Conference Centre.Ken Thompson was our named driver and took three children with their teacher to the event which included workshops on beekeeping,drumming,recycling and peace.Again, this proved to be a real learning experience for our Grange Primary School RotaKids.

Our next event is the Summer BBQ which will take place at the beautiful home of Chris and Mike Fallowfield on 8 July. Coffee Club At our May meeting, we heard from Jannine Ebenso who had just returned from Kathmandu to talk about the work of the Leprosy Mission. A Lancashire lass who trained as a physiotherapist before joining the Leprosy Mission in 1991. She was sent to Calabar (famed for Mary Slessor’s pioneering work in Nigeria in the nineteenth century), and there she met and subsequently married Dr Bassey Ebenso. When he came to Leeds to study for his PhD and then to do research, Jannine became Head of Quality Assurance for the Leprosy Mission worldwide. Jannine explained that although the disease of leprosy could be cured by modern medicines, the resulting physical, emotional and cultural damage often leads to the ‘cured’ patient being considered an outcast. Surgery, education and a full range of social and economic support can progress towards complete healing of the ‘outcast’ and restoration to his society … a truly worthwhile target. On July 18, Juliet Burd will be flying back from Uganda to give us an update on the work that she and her team with Children of Hope Uganda have been doing since her last visit. Abbot Hall Hotel, Kents Bank, at 10.30am preceded by coffee from 10am. Grange WI In May, members discussed, debated and voted in favour of two Resolutions for the AGM - one about alleviating loneliness and the other to reduce microplastic fibres entering the ocean. Margaret Brennand attended the AGM at Liverpool and found it a very interesting experience. Both Resolutions were carried at the AGM. Our craft team entered several exhibits at Country Fest and two members won prizes. Despite the rain our new look gazebo at the Edwardian Festival proved to be an attraction for the public, not least because it provided shelter from the rain which went on for the whole day. We were thrilled to win the prize for the best stall on the day and our cakes, traybakes and jams and chutneys were snapped up by the public. We are all hoping that the 2018 Edwardian will be a dry event, perhaps even warm and sunny! For our July meeting we will have a Treasure Hunt around Grange, followed by Fish and Chips in the Church Hall. New members are very welcome at our meetings. Contact Margaret for more details on Grange 36735.

Grange Probus Grange Probus Club enjoyed an entertaining talk by Derek Jackson on “the Power of Speech” at their monthly meeting.

The club’s July event will be its summer luncheon. Retired men and women are invited to join this thriving group which meets on the second Monday of each month at the Netherwood Hotel.

An amusing and varied demonstration was enjoyed by Cartmel and District Flower Club at Cartmel Village Hall on Monday 19th June 2017 on the subject “Come into the Garden Maud”. Kate Russell and Patti Dawson created some magnificent displays using the themes of The Garden of Eden, Kitchen Garden, Hanging Arrangement on Wood, Physic and Cottage Garden. The floral creations were accompanied by some erudite literary readings and Patti brought the afternoon to a close with a splendid rendition of the song which was the theme of the afternoon – “Come into the Garden Maud”. Sue Needham gave the vote of thanks. The next meeting is the Celebration Tea to be held at The Netherwood at 2pm on Monday 17 July 2017. Further information on membership and activities can be obtained from Dianne Cameron on 015395 32319.

One year on, and Love of Paws owner, Katie Sykes is looking back with pride at her first year in business. She told Grange Now, “Setting up Love of Paws was a complete change of career for me and I couldn’t be happier. I’m really lucky in that I have some wonderful clients who trust me with their amazing four legged friends. We have great walks together and, although I’m busy, I still have a bit of room in my schedule for more”. Katie looks after all makes and models and the majority of her clients like to have their dog walked in the company of other dogs. Katie explains, “walking in a group is not just fun for your dog, as they are naturally sociable animals, but it also helps to socialise the timid ones or those who get a bit stressed around other dogs.” To celebrate her first year, Katie is doing a prize draw, with a £25 voucher for Lamberts Pet Supplies as the prize. Every time you have your dog walked in July and August 2017, your name will be put into a hat and the lucky winner will be drawn at random on Friday 1st September. Contact Katie on: 07471 944 500

LETTERS Dear Editor, Why is it that United Utilities (UU) are allowed to impose traffic lights controlled working on Holme Lane, Allithwaite when all they are using it for is to dump spoil from their trench digging on Jack Hill, Kents bank until it is collected to be taken elsewhere? The temporary traffic lights are in use all night, all weekends including Bank Holidays. If UU were to take the spoil to their own depot` or wherever it is being dumped there would be no need to inconvenience everyone in

this way. Kirkhead Road is very much quieter than Holme Lane and it would be better there if it is allowed to dump spoil on the public highway.

While I am on the subject of Kirkhead Road it is dangerous to walk down the far end towards Priory Lane and Kents Bank station because of overhanging trees and no foot way on both sides, these trees have never been cut back to any extent in 20 years. I would be happy to show anyone from highways what I am complaining about in both cases. Keith E Walker, Holme Lane

Progress is being made by the Victoria Hall Support Group. We have had our constitution approved by Grange Town Council and have formally adopted it. This means we can now apply for charitable status, which opens up the opportunity for further funding for the Victoria Hall. We will also be running some

South Lakes Community Learning & Skills Greetings to all of our regular and new readers, I hope you are all well and enjoying the (occasional) summer weather!

With the end of the academic year coming to a close we are bringing our courses to an end rather than starting new ones. We will of course be restarting our courses, new and old from the second week of September. Watch this space in the upcoming months for more information. In the meantime, I thought I might remind and reflect on the last 12 months, the courses that we have provided and think about the courses we may offer in the future.

Let’s explore how we can all work together on community led initiatives to improve the health and wellbeing of our local communities. Cumbria County Council is working with your local NHS as part of developing Grange and Lakes South Lakeland Integrated Care Community. Residents of Grange and its’ surrounding communities are invited to a public discussion to help us identify those things

Starting back in September 2016 we organised and began all of our usual language courses which are ever popular, including French, Spanish, German and Italian classes for beginners, intermediates and advanced learners, we hope to be able to offer a similar range of courses again during 2017/18. Healthy Hearts with Elaine Towler has become one of our most popular courses in the Grange and Ulverston areas to the point where we introduced 2 new classes to Grange in the Spring of 2016. As regular attendees of the Healthy Hearts classes will know, these classes are now free to attend; this will continue to be the case.

We have tried several times to run iPad courses this year; these have fallen by the wayside for various reasons, up until this month. I’m

pleased that we have been able to get 3 beginners iPad courses up and running in Grange, Cartmel and Ulverston. For September we are planning further beginners and intermediate/ continuation courses to allow learners to carry on developing their knowledge and skills for iPad use. On the flip side of the coin, we’ve had lower enrolments on many of the arts and crafts courses we have offered, with many of them being cancelled due to lack of numbers. If there are any courses you would like us to provide please let us know and we will do our best to do so. As always I am keen to hear the ideas and requirements of the community we serve. I’d be happy to hear your thoughts on how we could progress and serve the community better through

locally that help people live happy and healthy lives; we want to work with you to see how together we can build on the strengths in your community.

Please join us at Grange Library on Thursday 6th July, 6.30pm – Refreshments will be available. If you would like any further information please contact the South Lakeland Community Development Team on 01539 713180 or carol.last@cumbria.

Adult Education, please feel free to contact our office, now based in Kendal Library with any and all suggestions. Also, we will be visiting the libraries in Grange and Ulverston during August and September to run our usual ‘Enrolment Mornings.’ Again, please keep an eye out in this publication, on the Library noticeboards or on the County Council website for the times and dates of these. Finally, I would like to say a huge thank you to all of our learners, tutors and venue providers for your continued support and we hope to see you all again in September.

Dear Editor, As a member of Grange Drama for some thirty years I wonder where the time went. I remember much of it was spent with Hilary Stubbs commuting by train to Preston when conversations were often about a particular play, its set design & costumes, ideas for future productions & so on. Above all I personally know her help with learning lines for various plays, none so challenging as Abigail’s Party or Time of My Life, was invaluable. Hanging up one’s acting boots is never easy for anyone but, after seeing Taking Steps last month, I can certainly say that it is just as enjoyable watching others perform - & no lines to learn! Over the years many drama ‘anniversaries’ have been a

Dear Editor, I am concerned about the number of banners appearing on the railings of the Ornamental gardens. The Grange Town Council has guidelines for placement of banners on these railings.

They are “to be small, in aid of local charities, noncommercial and only in place for two weeks and against the hedge area, not open railings, so visitors can still see into the gardens”. Recently there were

cause for a party or special event, a tradition begun at the Grayrigg Hotel by Reg and Shirley Parker. As Grange Drama looks ahead to ‘curtain up’ on an eighth decade, seventy years of performing plays is not going to pass us by without another special celebration to mark the occasion.

This is an invitation to all present and past members to join us at a Celebration Lunch at the Hampsfell House Hotel, Grange, on Saturday 19 August 2017 – 12.30 for 13.00 hrs. Further details and the menu will be posted up on the Grange Drama website from 1 July 2017. Note that it is essential to confirm your booking before Wednesday 9 August. Look forward to seeing you there! Margaret McDonagh, Grange Drama

seven, some of which were commercial and had been up for months. The appearance of so many banners, plus the five empty shops, and in the future the closure of the NatWest Bank and the Police Station, the three never ending building sites of Tesco, Ainsworth and Booths does not give a good impression of the town. I think the Town Council, plus our two District Councillors, should be doing something positive about the situation to bring pride back into Grange. Judith Shapland
