Nailsworth Town Planters
There is no doubt that a profusion of flowers makes a huge difference to the ambiance and attractiveness of a town or village. Nailsworth always looks fabulous and Nailsworth Rotary club is very fortunate to have flower expert Thorold and talented ‘mate in horticulture’ Jonathan to help and support the venture. Spring will soon be upon us and so the cycle will begin again, here’s to a blooming marvellous 2017 spring and summer show of flowers.
Stroud Court was established in 1983 by a group of parents with autistic children, it now provides year-round and life-long support for up to 39 autistic adults. Autistic people experience the world differently and so much of the work at Stroud Court is around creating an environment that is calm, safe, and relaxing. Residents enjoy the sensory garden, art centre, nature trail, and swimming pool with sensory sound and lighting.
Nailsworth Rotary Club is not just about donating funds and in this life-changing project, time and expertise are donated by a group of our volunteers to help create outdoor spaces which provide safe and stimulating areas for the residents. The woodland walk was unsafe for residents and so a significant project was undertaken to transform the walk making it safe and enjoyable for residents. The project was begun in spring 2016 and the final work should be completed in spring this year.
