We are fortunate to be located next to a local parade of shops, cafes and a library. We are just over a mile away from Basildon town centre where there is a shopping centre, market, cinema, theatre and various places of worship. The Festival Leisure Park is just a 10 minute drive away offering restaurants, bowling, arcades, crazy golf, and a wakeboard aqua park.
We are spoiled for choice for parks and regularly pay them a visit for our daily exercise and to enjoy the scenery.
We will encourage and support you to engage in community based activities and interests. We have a wide choice of local clubs including the Craft Shed where you can participate in craft and pottery sessions, Happy Hub for mental health and wellness sessions, and the Basildon Sporting Village and Eversley centre for sports and fitness.
We incorporate the community in our learning wherever possible, for example in a 'shop and cook' session we use the local library to look at recipe books, we practise using public transport to access the food shops, or we walk to the local shops to work on our road safety and stranger danger awareness. All these experiences help you to become more independent and live safely within your community.
