Thank You!


Eastmoor Community Project would like to say a big thank you to Kath Padgett for her generous donation of £150 to our Community Centre.

The donation was generated through the sale of Kath’s book, ‘Are you Strong, lass?’: Memoirs from a 70’s Yorkshire classroom. The book focuses on Kath’s early years as a teacher.


Kath taught at Wakefield City High School, now City Academy, for many years. Her pupils still speak highly of her understanding and of the fun they had in her class.

Kath’s memory is remarkable and she can still remember her pupils by name and some of the antics they got up to. She so enjoyed her teaching time on Eastmoor and her donation is a little thank you.

Kath’s book can be purchased through amazon:
