A club which takes care of a sensory garden for the community raised hundreds of pounds with a harvest coffee morning at the weekend.
The Sensory Garden Club, which takes care of the garden at King George’s Playing Fields, Brentwood, held the event on Saturday, where people could visit stalls, enjoy cake and refreshments and even take part in a pumpkin auction which was hosted by David Tee.
Around £250 was made on the day.
Chairwoman Joy Dunn said: “We were lucky to have glorious weather, and a good number of people dropped in for coffee and cake, bought produce from our stalls, stayed to enjoy the sunshine as well as watch the Pumpkin Auction.
“Funds raised from the event, including the auction, will go towards the purchase of plants for the sensory garden and the replacement of tools for The Sensory Garden Club.
“We are a small Community Organization which provides gardening opportunities for people with and without disabilities.
“We help to maintain the sensory garden, and grow fruit and vegetables on our disability-friendly allotment.”
