Summer Term Success

August 11, 2021 at 2:28 pm

Six pupils from St Stephen’s Primary School, who have been riding through the summer term, spent the day at Littlebrook learning the skills to pass their grade 1 and 2 Riding and Horse care certificates. The children were assisted by some of our volunteers.

The pupils had a wonderful day and learnt a lot. Many thanks go to Sally O’Neil for accommodating the group for the day thus enabling the children to enjoy this fabulous learning opportunity. Thanks also to all the volunteers for all their hard work both on the day and during the weekly lessons and to Lysa Jephcott, our inventive coach, for organising everyone.

The day finished with an award presentation. Lions Club District Governor Ian Forbes kindly came to watch the pupils take their grades and stayed to present the children with their hard earned certificates and end of year awards.

Welcome support from our generous friends

January 26, 2021 at 10:20 am

Although we have not had any riding sessions since last March, our ponies still need to be cared for and we are very grateful that our many generous friends have not forgotten us. The Sussex Wanderers MG Car Club have donated £1,400, East Grinstead Lions £300 and numerous other private donations total £4,377. This kindness will help us to keep our ponies fed, watered and exercised until we can start riding again. We hope this might be after Easter, for at least one school which can come as a bubble, and are keeping our fingers crossed.

Southern Sheeting Volunteers

Southern Sheeting Ltd, an East Grinstead based supplier of Roofing products, kindly sent us a group of volunteers on Tuesday 11th June, as part of their commitment to charities. Five guys and a girl turned up and in just a day repainted the whole of the indoor school and scrubbed down the Chamfron Building ready to paint. They were all really willing and cheerful, and quite prepared to turn their hands to anything.

Many hands make light work, and their help was truly invaluable.

Thank you guys and gals, and Southern Sheeting!

Welcome donation from East Grinstead Mayor Rex Whittaker

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.
