Garden Redevelopment Official Opening
Mr Jim Glover, the High Sheriff of Surrey, was welcomed by Sonja Freebody, CEO of Headway Surrey, along with her team to cut the ribbon and officially open the new garden. They enjoyed an afternoon in the garden with guests and clients alike. Many local organisations, such as Merrist Wood College Public Services students, AJ Maintenance, Community Foundation for Surrey, Christim Beck Community Fund have all been involved and been supportive in creating this tranquil area for clients. The Christim Beck Community Fund kindly granted £1,000 towards this project.
The newly designed and refurbished garden will allow brain injured clients to take time out in a tranquil environment. People with brain injury often experience sensory overload in daily life and in a classroom setting, so the peace of the garden will enable them to relax, reduce agitation and frustration.
The garden is an asset for Headway Surrey as it is another space for their clients to enjoy at lunch and break times, which gives them a chance to socialise with their peers or to sit quietly with a Rehabilitation Coordinator to discuss their own individual issues.
Volunteer gardener now required.
