Eastlife – April 2012

Easter is here and hopefully some warm spring weather with it as many of the region’s attractions swing open their doors for the season. We’ve got some great ideas to keep the kids happy during the holidays. I had the pleasure of talking to former Paralympic world champion Danny Crates, who told me his remarkable and humbling story from losing his arm in a tragic accident to the heights of athletics success – see pages 6-11. Oh, and don’t forget to join us on Facebook and Twitter! John Boston, Editor john@eastmag.com
