Innovative Garden of the Year

Hagley Place
Innovative Garden of the Year

Wimborne Care Home on Hayling Island has been awarded 'Most Innovative Garden of the Year' at the Barchester Care Awards 2017.

Not all our homes and hospitals have large grounds to work with, which mean people need to think outside the box in order to create the best possible spaces for the residents to enjoy.

The judges said: 'What could be more innovative and unique than garden decorations knitted by residents? They've made wraps for tree trunks, pom-poms and wall hangings to bring year round colour. But it's not just the knitting that makes this area special, it is full of ornaments hidden in unexpected places, and the more you look, the more is revealed!''

Congratulations Wimborne!
