Memorial Garden

November 14th, 2013

Memorial Garden

The willows group started this project in September 2012.  The group designed the layout of the garden themselves.  This included a patio area, a bench to sit on and a low maintenance garden which was planted with shrubs and a mulch of bark chips was placed around them.  The clients made the bench themselves and the bird table to encourage wildlife. 

We made a raised flower bed which was planted with summer bedding plants which they grew from seed themselves.  The clients now enjoy sitting and relaxing in the peaceful surroundings.  The group decided to dedicate this garden to a deceased former member of the group and a plaque was erected in his memory.

Team Hope – Christmas Box Appeal

Team Hope

Service users are busy helping “Team Hope” with their Christmas shoe box appeal.  This has become an annual event in St. Cronans; it provides service users with the ideal oppurtunity to give something back to the community.

The shoeboxes are covered with Christmas paper and filled with items for children.  Service users here in St. Cronans look forward to this project each year.  The boxes are then sent to various destinations around the world for distribution to Children living on the Margins of Society, victims of war, disease or poverty.
