Rex Whittaker, the Mayor of East Grinstead, had chosen East Park RDA as one of his charities for his recently finished year of office. At a Town Council meeting on Monday 14th May, Mayor Whittaker presented James Baxter and Annie Appleyard with a cheque for £3,000 from funds raised by holding events during his year of office. Mayor Whittaker has been a great supporter of East Park RDA over the last year, frequently attending RDA events. We are enormously grateful for this support and donation.

Carriage Driving Update

July 20, 2017 at 12:38 pm

Heatherley Cheshire Home in Copthorne have yet to start carriage driving, as a suitable day of the week has yet to be agreed.

We hope to start teaching two blind ladies the art of carriage driving in early August, once they have attended a ‘trial’ session with our driving coach.

We have entered our two driving ponies, Guy and Coke in the Pleasure Driving Class at the Edenbridge and Oxted Show to be held over the August Bank Holiday. There will also be a Bucket Collection, so please give generously.
