Published 21st September 2020
It feels like an eternity since March 23rd 2020 when the UK Government placed the country into 'lockdown' and effectively closed the wedding and event industry overnight. The position for many businesses, like ours, has not changed and with strict number limits and social distancing in place, it is difficult to offer nor deliver anything like the events we so strongly pride ourselves on.
Planning ahead at this stage is slightly more challenging that usual, especially as none of us knows when this pandemic is going to end and what the longer-term impact might be on our way of life and livelihoods. It is too early to predict how close to 'normal' we will be able to operate going forwards, but we will continue to stay abreast of any legislative and policy changes and discuss these with you as we get into the final stages of planning your event. We are certainly looking forward to getting back to work and seeing many of you in 2021, if not before.
Whilst pledging our committment to the 2021 summer season, we are sad to inform you that this will be the last in this chapter of our business. As it stands currently, our last event will take place in September 2021.
A global pandemic was what it took for us to have the time to pause and take stock of our position, priorities and passion for evolving our business. Events have been taking place at Grange Farm for over 25 years, with wedding receptions featuring heavily during the last decade. We have met some wonderful friends and delivered smiles to so many, but you'll appreciate our all-giving approach to such events leaves very little time, energy or resource for the new and exciting direction(s) in which we would like to take our business.
We look forward to updating you on this in due course.
We are extremely fortunate to have Adele Jamookeeah at the helm of our events for the duration, and she remains ready and excited to continue the planning of your event.
Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your existing or proposed event.
Once again, thank you for organizing a wonderful day for us yesterday! We all had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Many thanks for arranging my off-sites, they went like a dream! From the meeting room, to the lunch and activities, everything went according to plan and my teams had a fab day!
Please pass on our huge thanks to your colleagues but especially Ed and Bruce who looked after us extremely well. My favourite was Ed! Hopefully see you again very soon.
Best wishes... Fran and the NGA Team.
Thanks again for everything today, I think I can speak on behalf of the other guys and say the venue and service was perfect! The guys were surprised they had not heard of you, I am sure they will return!

We held a team day at Wittering Grange last year which all were really impressed by, so we were hoping you would be able to host a team day again.

Thank you so much for all your (and your colleagues) work last week to make our team away day such a success. Judging from the feedback I've had from the team everyone had a brilliant day and the highlight was definitely the blindfold driving! Thanks again for a brilliant, well organised and relaxed day last week.
