New sensory Garden installed at Short Breaks
Colleagues and people at Short Breaks Banstead teamed up with a SGN’s Community Action Programme, to renovate their sensory garden.
Community Action Programme
SGN’s Community Action Programme enables their team to volunteer for good causes that are close to their hearts. Every employee gets to volunteer one day a year to make a difference in their community. In this case, Short Breaks Manager, Karen O’Neill was approached and asked if there was any projects the team would like support with.
Short Breaks Garden
The garden at Short Breaks is a huge space. As you enter the garden you can see are huge grass area on a slope. As the slope begins to level out the grass turns into a patio. There is a trampoline and a few seating areas. Two days of teamwork and the garden has been transformed. Watch the video below to see what changes they made together.
Working in partnership
The impact of collaborating with a local business in the local community has a had a huge impact on everyone at Short Breaks. The design of everything built from the flower beds to the sensory instruments have been made to be accessible so people can continue to maintain and use the garden on a regular basis.
Karen O’Neill said “For the guys here, it will be so rewarding for them. It will be so lovely to see them enjoy the garden, rather than just looking at it.”
