Revitalised museum garden unveiled with party
10:08am Friday 4th October 2013 in News
ADULTS with learning disabilities, volunteers and youngsters have helped to revitalise a garden in Colchester town centre.
A party was held yesterday at the once overgrown plot of land at the Natural History Museum off Colchester High Street, which has been overhauled over the last year.
Volunteers started clearing paths, cutting back brambles and revealing the overgrown headstones at the former church last Autumn.
This summer new wildlife-friendly plants were added along with herbs to create a sensory bed.
Trainees from the Dacon Trust, which provides work experience for adults with learning disabilities, will continue to maintain the garden.
