Of the new garden, Cherry Trees CEO, Claire Bryant, said:
"Following a huge amount of support and work from so many individuals and organisations, the new sensory garden is now finished. We have to thank all of the kind people who made the project possible: from those who made a donation; to Scott Brownrigg who transformed our ideas into feasible plans; and to Silent Pool Gin for donating their wonderful Silver Gilt award-winning sensory garden. Our children and young adults absolutely love it. It offers a year-round, accessible space out in the fresh air where the toys, colours and smells of the garden can be enjoyed. A place where children, regardless of their disability, can enjoy the outside world with their friends, whilst growing and developing as individuals."
As part of the opening, a garden sign reading ‘A Garden Where More than Flowers Grow’ was unveiled by the Mayor of Guildford and Lord Lieutenant Michael More-Molyneux in tribute of late founder, Dr Helen Foley.
