Our garden needs you!

Published on 21 May 2019 11:24 PM

The team of staff and volunteers at Age UK Horsham District are in urgent need of some green-fingered volunteers to help maintain their garden.

The garden, which is enjoyed by over 100 local older people each week, is at our Lavinia House premises, which is just behind The Drill Hall in Horsham. Local older people who attend their social club (open Tuesdays to Fridays from 8.30am to 4.30pm) often sit out and enjoy the garden, especially during the summer months.

Clubs and Dementia Services Manager, Mandy Jones, explains “We are fortunate to have a wonderful, mature garden at Lavinia House, which has always been looked after by a team of fabulous volunteers. Their hard work has seen us win several Horsham in Bloom awards over the years but we now find ourselves in urgent need of some new volunteers.”

Volunteers can help for as little (or as much!) as they wish – every little really does help!
