Sensory garden to open at Wymondham

A new community sensory garden is to be opened next month at Wymondham. It features a pond area, woodland and meadow that will not only provide a “living classroom” for the pupils at Robert Kett Junior School, but also encourage wider community use particularly by elderly residents from an adjoining residential home.

A new community sensory garden is to be opened next month at Wymondham.

It features a pond area, woodland and meadow that will not only provide a “living classroom” for the pupils at Robert Kett Junior School, but also encourage wider community use particularly by elderly residents from an adjoining residential home.

The school has raised more than £10,000 for the project thanks to “tremendous support” from the town and district councils, Broadland Housing, the HSBC Bank, Waitrose, Bartrums funeral directors and the parents teachers association.

The opening is at 10am on Friday, June 27 when BBC East weathergirl Julie Reinger will cut a ribbon, helped by the school's youngest pupil, Nyambura Chege, and a 100-year-old resident from Robert Kett Court.
