The Grange Soroptimists were delighted to receive a Certificate of Recognition from the RHS and Cumbria and Bloom for their work in the Sensory Garden. The garden has been so important to many local people during lockdown and beyond, providing a beautiful and tranquil space. A number of members have worked very hard during the year maintaining the garden to a very high standard and providing so much pleasure and a safe space to relax, in such difficult times.
The RHS said “This year an amazing sense of community spirit has enabled people to face the difficulties of this dreadful pandemic together. Through your community gardening activities you have laid the strong foundations that helped make your community more resilient in these testing times.
We know that people have felt closer to nature through lockdown and valued access to green space so much more, and we have heard that people are valuing your work more than ever before.
We want to recognise how important you all are and how valuable your work is with certificates in 2020.”
Work in the garden continues ( weather permitting)!
