Work on the Sensory Garden
Grange Soroptimists are committed to making the Sensory Garden in Park Road Gardens , Grange – over – Sands a delightful place for everyone to enjoy.
A lot of on going work hasbeen undertaken and Members teamed up with “Men’s Sheds” this year and in August 2019 installed striking obelisks to further enhance the garden.
In 2018 and 2019 the garden had been transformed by new planting, new paths and edging with Soroptimists working very hard, laying cobbles on the edges of entrance path. the Club is very grateful for generous grants from Walney Extension Community Fund, The Hadfield Trust, Grange Town Council, SLDC and an anonymous donor which has enabled all this work. This will greatly improve access for the public particularly wheelchair and pushchair users. The garden was also used during the 2018 Pumpkin walk
In 2017 members worked very hard to clear some space and replant. Soroptimist Alison made a marvellous “Buggingham Palace” bug hotel to provide shelter for insects over the winter. The local Guides also made two bug hotels for the garden and these were installed in the garden to encourage insects and wildlife in 2016. The guides also supplied and help plant an apple tree in May 2017.
