Trinity Day Care Trust Visit

We had a fantastic card from Sally at the Trinity Day Care Trust:

“I thought you might like to take this photo to the next volunteer’s meeting. It shows some members of Trinity Day Care Trust with wives and helpers.

We enjoyed a stroll through the park reminiscing about the old days there and noting the recent developments and improvements. Everyone commented on how lovely the park looks, especially at the moment with the profusion of colour and the beauty of the wild flower gardens.

The eight wheelchair users easily got round the sensory garden, and while the culinary experts were crushing, sniffing and naming, others were merely dreaming of Sunday dinner!

The time and effort put in by you and the other volunteers is noted, and is very much appreciated. Thank you.”

Sensory Garden Fence Renewal

Before two days hard physical work passes into another memory can I thank everyone who contributed to the project in what has become the norm for projects in the park, rain! I think you will agree the outcome both looks good and more functional than our original construction. Do please pass on my thanks to those whose e-mail I do not have.

Special thanks for the Sheffield Rangers Team and Chris Dinsdale for their practical leadership, Millhouses Bowling Club for the contribution which funded the work and Pete Stow who organised and led the event.

Thank you all … I hope the muscles all heal soon!

Sensory Garden Opening

We are pleased to invite you to the opening of the sensory garden in Millhouses Park by Councillor Sylvia Dunkley on Friday 1 October at 10.00 a.m.

This area of the park has proved to be an oasis of calm and tranquility and the herbs and scented plants have really been appreciated by all our visitors this year. The wild flower garden, planted by friends and park staff, has been an enormous success.

The central planter, plus the recent addition of the two seats and pergola, was made at Ecclesall Saw Mill from locally sourced oak. The new sign, which includes Braille, has brought us almost to the completion of the garden.

Many thanks are due to all our sponsors, to the park staff and numerous Friends of Millhouses Park who have worked so hard on this project.

We look forward to seeing you. R.S.V.P.
