Volunteer at new gardening group

16th January 2020, 7:15pm | By Joanna Pazucha |

Fans of gardening and the great outdoors are invited to volunteer at Alzheimer’s Support’s new monthly Muddy Boots Club in John Coles Park, Chippenham.

The group will give people living with dementia and their carers the chance to be involved in a gardening project in the park’s sensory garden. Volunteers will support members in a variety of activities including pruning, digging, weeding and planting or just enjoying being outside.

Each session also includes social time where members and volunteers can chat over tea and biscuits.

For more information about volunteering for Alzheimer’s Support please contact Annie by phone on 01225 776481 or email Annie. Please note she works on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please phone the office for support at any other time.
