Many of you will have either been aware of the work being undertaken on our sensory garden in Steyne Gardens or, perhaps, even been along to help us with a bit of weeding or planting.
We have been working in partnership with Adur and Worthing Councils Parks department to create a new sensory garden for you our members, local community and visitors to Worthing. A wonderful team of volunteers and members led by Cherry Ward have spent the past two years transforming the garden
We are excited to have an ‘official opening’ event on Tuesday 1st August, from 11am – 1pm.
All are welcome to come along, join in the celebrations and enjoy the experience the sensory garden offers. If you need transport, please get in touch to book.
A few words from our Chairperson Cherry…
Our intention was to create a space that would delight all the senses: sight, smell, touch, and even taste, albeit with caution. However, we have yet to produce any sounds besides the soothing water flowing from Neptune’s fountain. Countless tears of both pain and laughter were shed but, through perseverance, we successfully prepared the ground to plant new bulbs. The assistance of our young ones and a diverse array of plants made this possible. Creating a safe and inviting garden for both creatures and people. To further captivate visitors, we strategically placed Wingsor Castle, Bugingham Palace, and an enchanting wooded area.
Our project has been made possible thanks to a grant from Rampion.
