Local organisations help school deliver sensory garden success

Magenta Living and Penny Lane Builders have been helping Meadowside School prepare their premises, ready for their new sensory garden, which will be officially opened in September.

Meadowside School, based in Woodchurch, is a specialist provider of education for pupils with complex learning difficulties, communication and/or sensory needs, autism, ADHD and varying health conditions.

A sensory garden has recently been built in the school grounds, which will benefit the students massively, creating a safe space for them to play and relax during breaks.

Meadowside School needed help clearing the site where the garden was to be built and contacted Magenta Living, who had supported them during the first lockdown by providing supplies such as hand sanitiser and hand creams. Magenta Living did not have the resources to clear the site themselves, so they called upon their partners to help.

Local contractor, Penny Lane Builders, who have recently completed the fantastic new homes on New Hey Road in Woodchurch in partnership with Magenta Living, stepped in to help. Penny Lane Builders cleared the site completely to make way for Meadowside School’s stunning new sensory garden.

Claire Dunn, Assistant Head Teacher at Meadowside School was delighted and said, “Penny Lane Builders have been amazing. They have been brilliant to work with, thank you very much to Magenta Living for arranging this for us.”

Jamie Martin, Head of Community Regeneration at Magenta Living said, “When we were approached by Meadowside School to help clear the site ready for their new sensory garden, we were delighted to get involved and contacted Penny Lane Builders who we have worked with on numerous developments, as we knew they would have the resources to help. Woodchurch is one of our largest neighbourhoods and we are always happy to help and get involved with the local community wherever possible.”

Gerard McEvoy, Managing Director of Penny Lane Builders said, “We were pleased to be approached by Magenta Living and asked to help out this fantastic school. The work they do is phenomenal so for us to have the opportunity to support them and put smiles on the faces of the children was a privilege, we were delighted to get involved.”
