A NEW sensory garden has been created for severely disabled young adults attending a Kirklees day centre.

The garden, at Oxfield Court Day Centre, Albany Road, Dalton, includes a variety of plants and shrubs which are fragrant or pleasant to handle.

There are also wind chimes and mobile sculptures which have been donated by the Bluebell Garden Club, which meets at Meltham Library.

The garden has been commissioned by Leeds-based charity St Anne's Community Services, which owns the centre.

The centre is used by severely disabled young adults and their families. Some live in bungalows on the site and some attend daily sessions from home.

It has been completed by garden designer Jan Moscovitch, of Lepton, and Abode, the landscape and construction business of her son Alex, also in Lepton. Jan is also a member of the Bluebell Garden Club.

The garden includes raised, curved beds of herbaceous borders around a decorative paved courtyard with a water feature, arbour seat and pergola archway leading to a lawned area.

The garden will be officially opened on Thursday September 29.
