Leighton Buzzard, Leicestershire
Cheddington School opened their sensory garden to the public in June under the National Gardens Scheme – the only school in England to do so. The garden was designed by pupils at this small village school which has around 200 pupils aged from rising five to 11, and is maintained by a thriving gardening club with the help of parent volunteers. Opening the garden, with the children acting as guides, enabled them to show the community what could be achieved in a school environment, to learn from expert visitors, and to raise money for Arthritis Care. They had about 250 visitors in total.
