We are celebrating 150 years of East Park from October 2023 – October 2024!
On this page, we hope to share with you some resources, or links to resources, you can use during the current situation. If you are aware of a resource you think should be here, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with full details.
We would like to say a huge heartfelt thank you to everyone at East Park through these challenging times of lockdown.
In particular my son’s carers who made sure he had an amazing 17th birthday yesterday. We were sad we couldn’t visit him in person but when we Facetimed in we were met with a lovely cake being brought to him and we as a family could sing “Happy Birthday” to him. He was so happy and it was so lovely for us to feel part of his day.
It really is these gestures of kindness that touches our hearts and will always be remembered so thank you to everyone of you for making it happen. You are all amazing.
