Sensory Garden Opening

30 June 2018

Willaston Scouts’ dementia-friendly sensory garden was formally opened this afternoon.

At the start of 2016, as part of A Million Hands, our beavers, cubs and scouts chose to support Alzheimer’s Society by creating a sensory garden in the grounds of our scout HQ. Over the last two years, each section has contributed to the development of this tranquil space, preparing the ground, erecting and painting fences (and a shed), planting, laying a pathway, weeding and watering.

As well as the hard work in the garden, beavers, cubs and scouts have learned about dementia and memory. A memory wall, with everyone’s favourite scouting memory will be on display to share with the community.

We hope the garden will be used by members of the community to make and share memories.
