Many of you have been part of our journey over the past four months as we have created the Sensory Garden. It is our pleasure to finally open the space, to the delight many residents.

The sensory garden, which has been designed, created and installed by the Amersham Town Council team includes so many wonderful features including a barefoot path, curved seating area, water feature and raised beds. Of course there is also the sensory planting- from herbs to grasses, colourful perennials to scented flowers, roses to pollinators- the borders are jammed packed with interest.

A huge thank you to Buckinghamshire Council and the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government for funding the project. We would also like to thank Resins ‘R’ Us for donating the resin bound, Michelle Catanach for creating the barefoot path and Carole Taylor for planting the living butterfly.

We have a few remaining features to add, along with a little more planting (when we can source the plants), however, be sure to pop along for a wander when you are next in Old Amersham- you will not be disappointed!
