Potential Kids gets green thumbs out in new garden
A new garden run by Potential Kids has been officially opened in Hatfield.
The Potential to Grow, a community and learning garden at The Galleria, will help neurodiverse children build their self-confidence and self-esteem.
Hatfield Town Council leader Cllr Lenny Brandon – who Potential Kids says was instrumental to make this happen – opened the garden on Friday, September 11.
While mayor of Welwyn Hatfield Cllr Roger Trigg – who named Potential Kids as his charity of the year, along with his deputy Cllr Peter Hebden and Hatfield deputy mayor Cllr Linda Mendez – also attended the ceremony.
The Galleria’s Learning Garden was re-purposed from a car park for community horticultural use back in 2011 and will now be set aside for Potential Kids.
