Therapy Garden at Broadgreen

After helping to build and paint the Therapies cabin last year, the Therapies department raised additional funding to create a Therapy garden for patient use including Macmillan patients and Therapies rehabilitation patients. It was mentioned in a Quarterly Sustainability meeting with the Trust that there was no suitable water supply in the immediate vicinity, with patients using an external hot water tap to fill up buckets and waiting until the water cooled to carry it back over to the cabin. The original idea was to install a water butt so rain water could be used but this was rejected by the trust as Legionella concerns were raised.  As an alternative, Avrenim FM installed an outside garden cold tap and supplied a 50m garden hose which now provides a quicker and safer method of supplying water to the Therapy garden.  Well done to all concerned!
