South Wales day centre announces garden makeover for adults with disabilities

Adults living with disabilities at Cwmbran Day Opportunities in South Wales will be able to have a summer of outdoor fun, thanks to a fresh garden makeover.

The team set out to restore an overgrown outdoor area close at the day centre, deciding it would be a great place for the people it supports to sit with friends and enjoy tea and cake in the sunshine.

The design of the garden is themed around the individuals who use the service, and each person has a photo included detailing what the space means to them.

It also has an accessible bench, sensory garden planters, and an area for each person supported by the service to call their own.

The team have plans to add to the garden throughout the year, including a bug hotel, bird nesting boxes and winter wildflowers.

Megan Gwyer, service manager at Cwmbran Day Opportunities, said: “We wanted to provide a beautiful outdoor area where the people we support could have fun and spend time with their friends while enjoying nature.

 “I’m particularly proud of our sensory planters, where people can see, smell and taste different flavours. I’m also delighted that individuals will have their own little patch to water, weed and care for, which really makes it a community space.

 “We can’t wait for our friends to join us in the garden and share this beautiful outdoor area.”
