Mayoral appointment for Q Gardens sensory garden

Volunteers at Q Gardens in Kirkholt celebrated the completion of their latest project as the Mayor and Mayoress of Rochdale dropped by to open their new sensory garden.

The sensory garden is the culmination of the hard work of volunteers together with a range of local partners and businesses, including RBH, Groundwork Landscapes Limited, Gordon Riggs garden centre, the Groundwork Trust and Crystal Doors.

The garden also benefitted from young volunteers from the National Citizen Service programme, who gave up their own time to learn the new skill of gardening.

Local residents and volunteers marked the occasion with a summer party, featuring a steel band, and fresh food including soup made from vegetables grown on site.

The Mayor and Mayoress of Rochdale, Cllr Ian Duckworth and Christine Duckworth, unveiled a plaque in the garden to mark the official opening before thanking all those who were involved in bringing the new space to fruition.
