A CHARITY which provides support for those with learning difficulties has unveiled its new sensory garden in WGC.

Jubilee House Care Trust celebrated the new facility within the Children's Service at Peartree Respite Centre, with a ribbon cutting session.

Staff, trustees and deputy mayor of Welwyn Hatfield, Kim Morris, attended the ceremony of the garden on Knella Road.

The garden, which cost £30,000 raised from fundraising, has a balance of sound, smell and visual effects.

There are various plants, flowers, apparatus, fencing, furniture and materials for the children to get to grips with.

Labour was provided free-of-charge by the armed forces - 53 Field Squadron (Air Support), 25 Engineer Regiment and the Royal Engineers.

Chief executive officer of Jubilee House, Catherine Hopper, said: "We would never have achieved this wonderful sensory garden without everybody's help, with both fundraising and voluntary labour.

"We now have a fantastic addition to the facilities which we provide to the local community."
