New Look for Sanctuary Gardens

Volunteers dig in

Vounteers have been digging deep to help revamp the outdoor communal area at The Sanctuary.

The facility, home to Compass Support, is used regularly by the local community in all kinds of weather, come rain or shine they are working to make the green space accessible and inviting to all.

The garden needed a few more hands, alongside our weekly regular attendees to help oversee a complete landscaping project. Recruiting support from The Prince’s Trust, the garden has almost completed the second phase of the development.

Alice Rawlins, Lead Volunteer, Compass Support said:

“We have been extremely lucky to further develop the garden project, and in record timing with sincere gratitude to the Volunteers from Prince’s Trust, we really wouldn’t have got this far in this time without the hard work and commitment from everyone involved.

“We have been able create a path for disabled access and incorporate a trellis, with the thanks to Wickes, to close off the area and make it more of a secret garden feeling to enjoy the green space in peace.

“We have been doing this project for almost a year now, and it’s been great to see the progress, although we have plenty of work still left to do.”

A special thank you goes to all from the Prince’s Trust, Wickes and Selco who supported the project.

Please contact the Compass Support office if you would like to be part of the Community Garden project, we meet every Tuesday at The Sanctuary from 12pm.
