Cadets brighten Wiltshire Height Care Home Bradford on Avon  in official garden opening

Tuesday 9 July saw the official opening of the Wiltshire Heights Care Home Cadet’s Corner, which was transformed from a small piece of scrubland into a beautiful sensory garden including a water feature, herbs and colourful flowers. 
Police and Crime commissioner Angus Macpherson, Lady Gooch and her husband Lord Arthur Gooch, Head of Crime Prevention Sonja Leith, The Mayor or Bradford on Avon Cllr Simon McNeill-Ritchie as well as PC Charly Chilton and PC Lee Pelling joined local residents, staff and Cadets at the opening.
PC Charly Chilton said; “Staff from the care home approached me when I was with the cadets doing the Op Sceptre tasking in March.
“14 of our cadets gave up their time during the Easter holidays to work on the garden.  The work included clearing dense plants and weeds, planting various flower bulbs, recycling items from the existing garden, digging a pond and putting in a fountain, planting a herb garden and adding personal touches like the Cadet Corner plaque that they all signed alongside painted rocks.
“The cadets try and do what they can to improve the local community and this can be from crime prevention advice, events or youth engagement.  This tasking allowed the cadets to engage with a community that they would not necessarily be visible to, and improve the day-to-day living for the local residents. They now have a fantastic open space that they can enjoy.”
The garden was officially opened by Angus Macpherson and Trowbridge Cadet of the Year Harvey Pugh.
Libby Miles, Client Services Manager of the home and Julie Adcock, Activities Coordinator said; “We would like to express our gratitude to the cadets for all of their hard work and praise them for their dedication to the project and for their kindness and consideration to the residents.”

Cadet Nicole Medin presented Julie Adcock with a piece of art work that she had personally completed to be hung in the communal area of the home to be enjoyed by staff and residents.

Our Trowbridge Cadet Unit is made up of Cadets across all our Towns in West Wiltshire including Melksham, Bradford on Avon, Westbury, Warminster and Trowbridge.
