Coopers@Ambleside Sensory Garden

October 7, 2022 - News

We have worked closely with Social Value Advisor, Aimi O’Donnell from Blackpool Council to arrange the planting of a sensory garden at our recently completed Coopers@Ambleside project. Planters, herbs and sensory plants were provided by LN Joinery and R&D Caunce and members of the local learning disability ‘Green Team’ were invited to take part in the planting exercise on completion of the project. The Green Team have also recently helped us out with bird boxes at our Sports Pavilion site located at Blackpool’s Employment Zone.

Green Team Leader, Neil Froggett said:-

By creating inclusive opportunities, this project has enabled a garden to be planned, developed and delivered by people using and providing the services. This would not be possible without Conlon’s collaborative approach to project delivery. The Green Team were included at every level which improved self-esteem, self-worth and provided vital life experiences to further develop each individual on the project, which led to a memorable and hugely enjoyable project that delivered all its agreed outcomes.
