Stunning garden makeover adds more green to Moorgreen!
At Heathcotes Moorgreen, the service users and staff certainly like to keep themselves busy. Each week, their Give it a Go group gets together to try a new activity and the service recently launched its own newsletter to bring regular updates on what’s been happening, from badminton to baking.
The arrival of summer has inspired Heathcotes Moorgreen to turn their attention to the garden, where they have given the outdoor space a stunning makeover. They recently passed on some pictures which have made many of us admire their work – with a touch of envy, it must be said!
The place has been adorned with beautiful greenery and all kinds of ornamental creatures, from butterflies and bunnies to frogs and finches. Other features include a wishing well, hanging baskets, bird table, toadstools, raised beds and an elegant trellis arch with flowers intertwined. They have even created a covered seating area with sofas to enjoy the outdoors on rainy days!
Service Manager, Amanda Elliott, said:
“The service users are very proud of their efforts and rightly so. During lockdown we painted one of the fences in rainbow colours as a tribute to the work of carers across the UK. Seeing how beautiful that looked made us all think about other things we could do to spruce up the garden. Since then, it has been an amazing transformation assisted by our support team. These days, we all want to spend more time in the garden, even when the weather isn’t great!”
