We have done a lot of hard work to get here and now we will deliver on that potential. It’s a very exciting place to be involved in. We are all focussed on the end goal of making EF a better place to work and to visit.”

    “One of my favourite thing as a kid was pop-up books and pop-up cards. The look of surprise and delight on a kids face is priceless as something flat becomes dimensional. Even now as an adult, I still love getting pop-up cards from people. To me, Essendon Fields is a pop-up card in the making, becoming more and more inspiring as it continues to unfold.”
