We are so very proud that Nicola Waghorne, our Community Gardener, has been awarded a ‘Swale Stars’ award for ‘service to the community’!!!
We’re sure you’ll all agree she is a shining star 🙂
Nicola works with allotmenteers, offenders and specific interest groups like wellie club, mental health and learning difficulties. She has worked hard to develop the garden and allotments, including ensuring the garden is accessible to wheelchairs. She is currently building a classroom so that she can teach. She has a brilliant relationship with the prison, and is able to do a lot more than they initially thought possible, giving offenders a chance to learn new skills before they’re released.
