Volunteers bring sensory garden to life

Scope gardening volunteers

A group of 11 volunteers from the Hatfield Job Centre in Hertfordshire have battled their way through a forest of nettles after all the rain and glorious sunshine we have had in the past month, to bring our beautiful sensory garden back to its full glory. They are only one of several groups of people who have donated many hours to help us bring this vision of a parent into full fruition.

The residents of Orchard Manor transition service and students of Meldreth Manor School can now seek respite from the sun and enjoy the smell of lavender and thyme as those plants flourish in the garden.

Our young people have made bird houses and a large watering vessel for the birds who visit the garden and these will soon be in place.

The garden would not be here without the dedicated groups of volunteers who have helped us throughout the year and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their hard work.
