Woodland Grove’s 72-hour Garden Project officially comes to an end as the home prepare for the grand opening event

Our Woodland Grove 72-hour garden challenge has officially come to an end. To celebrate this achievement the home is planning a grand opening event on Tuesday the 15th of September 2020.

The garden will be unveiled to everyone on that day with the Mayor of Loughton, Cllr Stella Murphy doing the official ribbon cutting honours. Residents who have worked on the project for the past few months will also be in attendance. Residents are planning on writing a poem about their experience and will be reciting it on the day.

Through this project the home has been raising money for The Care Workers’ Charity and have managed to raise an amazing total of over £1,000. The care home Lifestyles Manager, Elise Woolnough will be designing a mock cheque payable to the Care Workers Charity that will be presented on the day.

Elise expressed her gratitude by saying, “Thank you so much to everyone that has been following along with our journey and who’s donated to this amazing cause. This is such a worthy cause and I cannot believe how fast we’ve raised that amount of money.

We can’t wait to officially open up our garden to our residents and celebrate all of their incredible hard work. Residents have loved this project and we hope to share the magic of our garden with everyone at the home soon!”

The guests will enjoy afternoon tea and cake and the event will be live-streamed on Woodland Grove’s Facebook page from 2pm onwards.

The event will take place in the home garden where all of the necessary precautions and guidelines will be followed to keep everyone safe.
