Work on the Sensory Garden

Maintenance was done on the Sensory Garden on Saturday 18th May.

Twelve of our members were hard at work doing a general tidy up and planting two honeysuckles. Denise and Keith assembled two obelisks to put over the honeysuckles for the plants to climb up.

If you think you would like to help us in the future please contact us using the Contact FoAP tab at the top of the page or come along to one of our Members Meetings at Chorley Town Hall. See when our next meeting is – CLICK HERE
