Grange Soroptimists are committed to making the Sensory Garden in Park Road Gardens , Grange – over – Sands a delightful place for everyone to enjoy.
Recent activitis in the garden include a covered seating area made and installed by Grange shed members. This proved very useful for the public on rainy days and for our entry for the Greening Cartmel Peninsula scarecrow competition. Members contine to maintain and develop the garden and an information board and leaflets will soon be installed. The garden has been particularly helpful during lockdowns giving locals a place to relax and enjoy nature.
In 2018 and 2019 the garden was 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 latest Pumpkin walks.
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.
