An ‘End of Summer Party’ was recently held at York House to mark the official opening of the sensory garden that both service users and volunteers have worked so hard on over the summer.

Since the original project started in August service users have worked hard decorating tyre planters and birdhouses to bring colour to the garden, whilst also weeding and planting bulbs ready for next year.

At the party, service user Orla gave a speech about the sensory garden project and then, service user, Thomas, cut the ribbon and declared the sensory garden officially open.

Volunteers from the Enable Project, who did a lot of work on the garden in August were invited to attend the party and celebrate with them. There was karaoke, a disco, garden games, and homemade smoothies for refreshment. The afternoon was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
