Glossop Arts Project are celebrating their work on a sensory garden in Manor Park with a special event which will be attended by High Peak MP Ruth George this weekend. 

The Arts for Wellbeing group studied the flora and fauna of the garden, looking at what makes a sensory garden, and contributed plants donated by Lymefield Garden Centre in Broadbottom which stimulate the senses.

They worked with local artist Deiniol Williams to produce the beautiful flowers and invited Glossop Visually Impaired Group to be a part of it.

The project entitled Four Seasons was funded by Derbyshire County Council’s Communities Programme, which puts an emphasis on improving local spaces and bringing communities together.

In the sessions, the group painted, printed and made ceramic flowers which will be unveiled at the event.

It’s taking place on Saturday afternoon from 2pm to 4pm in Manor Park and everyone is invited to go along.

There will be afternoon tea and handmade cards and gifts will also be available to buy.

On Saturday, MP Ruth will also be paying a visit to Glossop Community Allotment to see progress and hear about community groups working together to improve wellbeing.
