Everards complete sensory garden project

22 May 2024

Holmfield Day Centre is a social care facility located in Leicester, UK. The centre offers day care services for older adults, including those with dementia or other cognitive impairments who may require extra support and care during the day.

Trained staff provide a variety of activities and programs to encourage socialisation, mental and physical stimulation, and overall well-being for the clients.

The centre aims to create a safe and supportive environment for older adults, helping them maintain their independence and enhance their quality of life.

On a sunny day in May, a team of volunteers from Everards Brewery completed the creation of a sensory garden for guests to enjoy and maintain. The team had prepared planters and pots and emptied the existing pond in readiness for the day. The first part of the morning was spent filling and rejuvenating the pond, and planting the pots and raised bed with sensory plants.

The team had a special surprise for the guests and staff in addition to the garden. Within the grounds of the centre, they have a small replica village that includes a small pub. The team brought Everards memorabilia, including beer mats, pictures, and bar mats, and they also donated boxes of glasses, and they also installed a dummy beer pump, completing the transformation.

Thank you all so much, it looks absolutely fab, a job well done!
