05 Aug Mind Havering Sensory Garden
In the last 18 months, due to the pandemic, we have seen an increase in the countries drive for mental health awareness with a considerable push on mindfulness. The concept of escapism often found in holidays is something we haven’t been able to achieve.
Mind Charity, alongside volunteers’ assistance, has seen the creation of gardens up and down the country. The outcome has seen little pockets of haven which stimulate the senses. It will provide visual and sensory benefits to assist those struggling during these difficult times, alongside providing a much-needed ecosystem in urban areas.
Mind in Havering has started to transform its gardens behind its offices into a usable sanctuary. Work includes decking and covered area, disabled access walkway, seating areas, client allotments and fencing. The addition of these facilities will create a safe place that people can engage with others throughout this hard period.
BTS Property Solutions recognised that there was a development starting within Havering. We have donated materials and will install the pathways in the garden. With the whole project working on donations, we were pleased to help in any way we could.
