'A Garden Where More than Flowers Grow' - New Sensory Garden for Surrey-based charity Cherry Trees officially opens.

Cherry Trees is a Surrey-based charity that provides home from home care for children with complex disabilities and a meaningful break for their families. Over the past few years, we have partnered with Cherry Trees to help design and build a new sensory garden. The official opening took place last month. 

Designed in consultation with the children and their families, the garden provides a safe place where children can be children; where they can explore emotions and senses, learn to grow food, and how to ride a bike. A practical space that can be enjoyed throughout the year and in all weathers.

Of the new garden, Cherry Trees CEO, Claire Bryant, said:

"Following a huge amount of support and work from so many individuals and organisations, the new sensory garden is now finished. We have to thank all of the kind people who made the project possible: from those who made a donation; to Scott Brownrigg who transformed our ideas into feasible plans; and to Silent Pool Gin for donating their wonderful Silver Gilt award-winning sensory garden. Our children and young adults absolutely love it. It offers a year-round, accessible space out in the fresh air where the toys, colours and smells of the garden can be enjoyed. A place where children, regardless of their disability, can enjoy the outside world with their friends, whilst growing and developing as individuals."

As part of the opening, a garden sign reading ‘A Garden Where More than Flowers Grow’ was unveiled by the Mayor of Guildford and Lord Lieutenant Michael More-Molyneux in tribute of late founder, Dr Helen Foley.
