NEWS ON THE SENSORY GARDEN

It has become such a part of our local landscape and church area, that we may be at risk of taking it for granted. But were it not for a dedicated group of stalwarts, the award winning Millennium Sensory Garden would not be the beautiful and flourishing haven it now is. And the helpers need help!

So a reminder from Angela an Pauline on how it all began and an invitation for any of us who can, to join the group.

As part of the Millennium celebrations in Shifnal. a group was formed to raise funds and develop a sensory garden. It is now a permanent celebration to be enjoyed by the local community.

Located in Innage Road, adjacent to St Andrew’s Church. it is easily accessible, safe, colourful and peaceful

It features wide footpaths, seating areas, raised beds, planting designed for scent texture, sound and touch. There is a statue and features for the birds which help enhance the garden.

A voluntary working party can be seen on the first and third Satur­days of each month between 930am, and 12noon. They are committee members and friends of the garden who help keep it maintained to a very high standard through the year.

Anyone is most welcome to join, it is rewarding to be part of a group of friends who work to give others pleasure and see the garden grow and develop through the seasons. For their efforts, they were awarded the Queen’s Golden Jubilee and the Green pennant awards. This year, the project is to enhance the area behind the statue by building a pergola which will be planted with wisteria

The garden is maintained to its high standard with the help of kind donations, maybe remembering loved ones or celebrating a special occasion. An entry goes into a book held in the library as a record. Fundraising also helps future planting, insurance and other costs.”
