Bournemouth Echo: Volunteers help to transform garden at Poole disabled school Volunteers help to transform garden at Poole disabled school

A TEAM of green-fingered volunteers made a huge difference to a school in Poole for disabled children.

The 21 staff from Barclays House in Poole took part in the six-month project to rejuvenate the area and provide a new sensory walk and wildlife garden at Langside School, which is run by charity Diverse Abilities Plus.

The volunteers spent a day at the school clearing plants, weeds and mounds of undergrowth, digging up the garden, setting concrete borders and planting sensory plants and installing sensory items that the children can easily reach when they visit the garden.

Principal Jon Seaward said: “The transformation of the sensory garden was nothing short of miraculous and we can’t wait to see the children benefiting from all the efforts made.”

One of the volunteers, Bex Collins, was on her school work placement at Barclays House. Bex is also the great granddaughter of the charity’s founder.
