Contractors are on site at the care home to work on creating a pathway, while the Community Team from the Mid Counties Co-Op who be lending a hand next month to clear the wooded area and lay the allotments, where residents will be able to grow their own fruit and vegetables.

A spokesman for the home said that it will ask local residents, school children and community groups to help design areas of interest throughout the wooded area, such as wildlife habitats and seating areas.

A small memorial area is also planned for the area, where residents or families can donate benches, statues, bird tables, wind chimes n the name of their loved ones.

“The allotment, shed and greenhouse will be available for residents and their families to use and there should be enough room for everyone who is interested, to have their own space and we look forward to the first crop of veggies and flowers,” she added.
