An easier way to enjoy the sunshine

The weeping cherry planted in the hospital garden last autumn has been flowering beautifully in early spring, giving pleasure to staff and patients alike.  Some patients from the wards are able to go out into the fresh air as the days become warmer and the flower beds start to bloom.

But If they are in a wheelchair it has – up to now – been difficult to navigate the grass on the way to the garden seat.  

The problem has been solved and now a path has been laid to smooth the journey. The Friends are very grateful to Colin Quilter, CEO of CQ Surfacing Ltd, who gave his time and labour free. He has created a beautifully smooth route onto the garden.  

As the days get warmer, we’re sure that patients will enjoy the gentler ride from the tree to the pergola and seat.  

The path cost £7,500 – a sum made possible through the continued support given by local people and organisations to our charity.  Thank you.
