Many hands make light work, although the members of Shepshed Charnwood Rotary Club may not agree as they embark on a new and exciting project to provide a Rotary Corner in the Wellbeing and Sensory garden currently being developed at the Shepshed Volunteer Centre. The corner will include a wheelchair-friendly grassed area designed for relaxation, in which the residents of Shepshed can participate and develop an interest in shrubs, plants and nature. It will include a greenhouse, several specially designed flower beds, a shrub border and garden shed . A raised water garden, with seating, will form the centrepiece for those that just want to sit and relax. Work is already underway, funded by the Rotary Club, a Rotary Foundation District Grant and donations from local businesses. The Shepshed Charnwood Rotary Club, based in Kegworth, undertakes activities covering many local towns and villages and has put together this project as part of its Vocational Policy where club members use their own expertise and skills to support local community work. Angie Whitmore, from the Volunteer Centre, presented her plans for a Wellbeing and Sensory Garden to the Club only a few months ago and the members were so impressed that the Rotary Corner project was put together.
