Marks and Spencer Cranleigh supporting Rowleys.

There is no doubt whatever that Marks and Spencer at Cranleigh can lay on an impressive spread!

Staff at the store, in its tenth year of supporting charities in the community, decided a special celebration was in order and invited members of Rowleys Centre for the Community to join them at a sumptuous tea party on Tuesday June 6.

The party was held at Rowleys centre in Victoria Road and 80 members went along to enjoy a wonderful array of sandwiches, cakes and pastries, teas, coffee and a celebratory glass of M & S Prosecco. The tables had been beautifully laid with pretty crockery, 3 tier cake stands and flowers.

There was entertainment from Emilee Lucia who sang some memorable songs, many from the Sound of Music and staff members busily waited on tables.

The store had been supported in this venture by other businesses in the village who donated some generous prizes for a huge raffle.

Cranleigh store manager Jon Bellasis said: “Every Marks and Spencer store has done something in its community. At Cranleigh we have already been supporting Rowleys for some time with food waste* for the kitchen or for members to buy. We have also just completed a project to refurbish Rowleys foyer creating a more welcoming entrance to make arrival at Rowleys a more appealing experience.”

Jon added: “The tea party was something we wanted to do for members and for the many volunteers who have been able to relax for a change rather than running around after other people!”

There was no doubt everyone really enjoyed the event – huge thanks go to everyone at Marks and Spencer in Cranleigh for organising such a smashing afternoon.

Rowleys very own Two Ronnies!

Two Ronnies

Two Ronnie's at Rowley's

They might not have quite the panache of the original comedy duo but when it comes to a bit of banter, the Two Ronnies at Rowley’s in Cranleigh can raise a giggle or two.

Ronnie Parsons senior and his son, Rowley’s new chef, Ronnie Parsons Junior, make a great team and are the best of mates. Ronnie senior from Cranleigh, goes along to Rowley’s two or three times a week to play Bingo, take part in other activities and stay for an excellent lunch cooked by his son.

Ronnie junior, who lives in Horsham, started working as chef at Rowley’s Centre for the Community in Cranleigh in October and his delicious lunches have tempted many more local people to go along.

Ronnie junior is getting ready to receive 120 guests at the centres Christmas lunches on December 15 and 16 while Ronnie senior was last seen chatting to some chums sporting a rather unusual comic false mustache. “I wonder if they will notice,” he chortled. Well it is nearly Christmas.

Now he is getting ready to rcook for 120 guests at the centres Christmas lunches on December 15 and 16 while Ronnie senior was last seen chatting to some chums sporting a rather unusual comic false mustache. “I wonder if they will notice,” he chortled. Well it is nearly Christmas.
