Rotarians gather to see progress of sensory garden
3:00pm Monday 3rd September 2012 in News
BUILDING work on an ambitious project by Bromsgrove rotarians to create a sensory garden in a town park is underway.
Last Thursday, (August 30), members of Bromsgrove Rotary Club organised a viewing of the garden, in Sanders Park off Kidderminster Road, to see how the project is progressing.
The garden is in the shape of the Rotary Club's wheel logo, with a stone wishing well centrepiece, and canals with water gently flowing through them.
But progress on the garden was delayed after the poor weather this summer led to wet ground, as contractors tried to lay the foundations.
The next stages of the construction are to insert the water tank, finish the block paving, and then plant the sensory plants.
Work was originally scheduled to be completed by the end of August, but the club are now hoping it will be finished in time for an opening ceremony and official unveiling on September 16.
Among the principal guests who attended last Thursday’s event were president of Rotary International of Great Britain and Ireland John Minhinick, and Bromsgrove Rotary Club president Bob Foxall.
The garden forms part of the club’s 75th anniversary celebrations, being held this year.
