Winterton-on-Sea In Bloom


Chair Claire Thompson said: “We as a team want to use our gardening skills to help others through touch and smell to enjoy new experiences.

“It will be a haven of tranquillity, a place to walk around and enjoy the beauty and many different perfumes or just sit and spend some reflective time.”

The garden will feature wheelchair-friendly raised beds.

The planters cost between £350 and £400 each, including soil and plants and the group is asking for help to raise the money for these along with sensory borders and a new flowerbed.

THE Winterton-on-Sea in Bloom team is planning to create a sensory garden on the village hall green.

The project, which was devised with residents of the three Mencap homes in the village - Hales House, Broadview and the Old Rectory - in mind, will offer a therapeutic destination when they are out and about with their carers.

But it will be there for everyone in the village to enjoy.
