Brett Landscaping Supports New Sensory Garden

Brett Landscaping has donated over 70 square metres of its Broadway riven flag paving to a new sensory garden in Loughborough. The pledge, which comes as part of the company’s Love Your Landscape initiative, will benefit wheelchair users and people with limited mobility at Charnwood Gardening Project, part of Voluntary Action Charnwood.

Volunteers cleared and levelled the ground, and the products from Brett Landscaping were used to create a large, accessible paved area, complemented by raised beds made with railway sleepers. Donations were also received to purchase a greenhouse.

Sarah Gretton, of Brett Landscaping said: “This new sensory garden will give wheelchair users and people with limited mobility the chance to enjoy the outdoors. Being able to donate materials which we make locally, free of charge, to such a worthy community project is what the Love Your Landscape initiative is all about. We were pleased to be invited to the official opening and wish all at the project every success for the future.”

Bobby Smith, Charnwood Gardening Project Coordinator commented: “The support we have received from companies like Brett Landscaping, as well as individuals, has been incredible. We would like to thank all those that have so generously donated equipment, materials, money and time to the project. We know the new sensory garden will be greatly appreciated by the local community.”

Charnwood Gardening Project, part of Voluntary Action Charnwood, has been running for 15 years and offers opportunities for adults with learning and physical disabilities. The group also works with local colleges and universities to provide work experience for students at all levels. For more details see www.voluntaryactioncharnwood.org.uk.
