It’s Blooming Marvellous At Barley Court

It’s Blooming Marvellous At Barley Court

Barley Court tenant's Robert Watling, Janet Oates and Claude Carter have kept busy during lockdown. The gardening trio have worked hard on improving the little grassed area outside Janet's apartment and are extremely proud of the lawn and flowerpots that adorn the patio area. The courtyard garden at the Independent Community Living Scheme in New Costessey has come alive with painted benches and beautiful flowers from Pineapple Plants to Lillies and it has also become a haven for wildlife too.

Robert said "Doing the garden has kept me busy, it has become a great talking point, and it keeps our minds and bodies busy too."

Tracey Harris, Head of Wellbeing & Partnerships commented

"With our permission Robert, Janet and Claude used their spare time to enhance the outside space at Barley Court, it gave the tenants and staff a boost during lockdown too".
