Trustees, staff and service users got together to transform the garden of Peartree Short Break Centre, a purpose-built bungalow for children with learning disabilities.

Run by Jubilee House Care Trust, the work that took place on Tuesday, July 17, now means the children have a pleasant area to play in.

A spokeswoman for the charity said: “In a fantastic team effort, everyone came together and in one day, created a safe, bright and interactive outdoor space for the children to enjoy, just in time for the summer holidays.”

The garden provides an invaluable part of their daily care, giving them access to fresh air, exercise and sensory stimulation.
