Courtyards Update


We've had a busy and delightful season in the Hospital courtyards, and finally we have our shed! We began with the hardest work - attending to a backlog of tidying and weeding as pandemic restrictions has interrupted our access. After order was restored, our volunteers visited Camphill Community Gardens and were very impressed and inspired by their huge array of produce and their dedicated team. The cake in the cafe was delicious! 

As Autumn arrived we set to work on our donated shed - clearing out the spiders and tidying it up. We've painted the inside a beautiful shade of lavender and we'll be collaborating with local carpenter Iain Talbot (@salvagehacker) to install a salvaged workbench.

Finally we'll end the season by helping to install a green roof kindly donated by Bridgman & Bridgman.

The next exciting development in our Courtyards is a successful application to the Postcodes Trust for money to fund a Sensory Garden next summer. It has been agreed that we’re going to develop the Wheel courtyard into the Sensory Garden because it is the perfect size and has low maintenance planting.

Katie Ellen-Fields, Courtyards Supervisor, would personally like to thank our Courtyard volunteers, Matthew and Andrew, for all their hard work, expertise and commitment to the courtyards.

The Sensory Garden/Creative Courtyards at MKUH funded by The Postcode Trust and MKUH Charity.
