Thank you to Surestart

SIR, — I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Downpatrick Surestart.

My young toddler and I attended the 10th anniversary celebration in the Ballymote Centre last Thursday. The celebration was fantastic and a true reflection of the amazing work the Surestart team do everyday.

As a mother I currently use the services regularly, attending parent and toddler, chatterbox and play and development sessions. I can not express my gratitude enough to the whole team. They are so enthusiastic, kind, patient and dedicated to the welfare of children and their parents.

I just hope the team realise what a wonderful job they do and get the credit they deserve. It is too easy too complain and be negative about lack of services etc. and forget to say thank you and praise the excellent work that is being done everyday.

Please keep up the fantastic work as children are precious and Surestart ethos is all about the parent and child. Thank you from bottom of my heart for all your help and support. May you have another wonderful ten years to come.

Yours etc.,


Malone Court,
