Clients and volunteers made the most of the beautiful sunshine this month. There was a lot of activity outdoors in our heritage garden. It’s the ideal location to sit and enjoy some ice-cream after a leisurely stroll or putting on the green or using the exercise equipment. This garden is completely enclosed with a safe walkway all around.
We had music sessions outside this month which brought a real sense of summer to the Centre.
We are delighted to have our horticultural area up and running with the addition of a poly tunnel and raised bedding. So far we have lettuces, tomatoes and cucumbers amongst others sown on specially designed troughs. These ingredients are being used by our catering department. Lovely flowers are blooming in our mobile raised planting beds. For the remainder of the year we will be planting vegetables and plants from seed and with the gentle care from our clients these will be transplanted around the grounds when strong enough. Our catering manager Grey Makoni visits every day to pick from these ingredients for our meals.
John Conroy brought a fantastic sense of fun and enjoyment to his exercise sessions using a variety of equipment to promote health and mobility
