Sensory garden opensÂ Delight as sensory garden opens at Portsmouth day service
A SENSORY garden for disabled service users has been opened in Portsmouth, proving hugely popular with visitors.
Henderson Road Day ServiceÂ recently had a sensory garden installed '“Â which has apparently gone down a treat.
Assistant manager Duncan Mathewson said: '˜The response has been hugely positive.
'˜It provides a fundamental resource for the service users that we have '“Â it's an accessible outdoors space that we previously didn't have here.'
The garden was funded by a donation from Roy Maunder, with Fachtna Mcaboy putting the plants into the garden itself '“Â which features an array of colours, smells and sounds.
Duncan added: '˜Colas also did the groundwork for us and it wouldn't have gotten off the ground without them.
'˜I don't think I could pick out a single favourite part. Everything in the garden works really well together '“Â and the raised beds giveÂ our service users the chance to get a feel for the plants too.'
