Creative Courtyards Update6th June 2023
This spring the growing season has been keeping our Creative Courtyards team on their toes, but not just that our new storage shed - fondly named the #megashed - has been given a fresh lick of green paint and the Sensory Garden project, funded by the Postcode Society Trust, is beginning to take shape!
We have been clearing old and overgrown shrubs and plants from the garden, enlarging two of the flower beds ready for new plants to be added. Early June saw the first new plant deliveries, including lemon balm for scent and various grasses for sound and texture. Trimming the larger shrubs has let more light into the garden and provided alternative navigation through the space. In the coming months the flooring and sculpture will be getting some TLC!
The Patient Experience team has also started to put together wind-chimes for the garden with the help of patients.
Thank you to all of the volunteers who have given their time so far including the Milton Keynes Hospitals Patient Experience Team and Slated Row School.
We are seeking a new Creative Courtyards Supervisor! This is a part-time paid role based at the hospital. Please contact us for further details.
