Laverstock Care Centre gets garden makeover

The residents of Laverstock Care Centre have been watching on with intrigue recently as a group of industrious young men have set about transforming one of the garden areas.

The four boys from Wyvern College, aged 15-16, will be getting their hands dirty for the coming 13 weeks as part of the ‘helping in the community’ part of their Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.

Under the guidance of Ann Morton and Barry Pentelow, they are helping to develop the dementia garden. This will involve planting daffodils, preparing a raised bed for vegetables, painting and decorating a shed with a nautical theme and making a pigpen for a number of (artificial) pigs.

Helen Pessell, Laverstock Care Centre Manager said:

‘We are delighted to have the boys working on the project, they are doing a wonderful job and we are all so grateful. This will improve the garden immensely, making it more pleasurable to sit in and explore and the residents will be able to enjoy the area for a long time to come.’

Situated on the outskirts of Salisbury, Laverstock Care Centre is a purpose-built home that provides residential, nursing and dementia care for up to 80 elderly ladies and gentlemen.
