Rosedene Easterside in Middlesbrough celebrated its tenth anniversary with a visit from two very special visitors – local ward councillor Craig Wright and Middlesbrough Football Club mascot, Roary the Lion.
Roary and Craig were given a special, socially distanced tour of the facility, which is located next to St. Thomas More School and enjoyed a slice of birthday cake.
Our Rosedene Easterside children also tested their skills trying to score goals against Roary.
The team at Easterside has built up strong community ties over the last decade with key figures in the community, including a partnership with health visitors, the local children’s centre, church groups and small businesses.
Craig Wright, councillor for Ladgate Ward, said: “Happy birthday Rosedene Easterside! Throughout the pandemic, Rosedene has been a vital support to the community and its fantastic to work with a brilliant nursery which puts children first and has community at its heart.”
