Dear Hawthorne-on-Essex Families,

It is with great sadness that I must inform you that our beloved Helen who was an assistant teacher with our centre for the past 13 years has passed away. Helen was a warm hearted , loving and nurturing person that touched many of our lives. She was a great support to the  children and their families at our centre. She was a valued member of our staff and community and will be greatly missed. We send out our condolences to her family and friends.
