Sam Harmans Garden

We had a request from Ian and Hester Harman, asking if we could help make a garden accessible for a local boy, Sam, 3 who has cerebral palsy and is confined to a motorised wheelchair.

We agreed to provide the labour for the project, funding had been sought elsewhere.

We shifted nearly 20 tons of top soil on the first day, using a mini digger donated by Phil Vanstone of Groundplant in Bideford, and shifting it with a tractor and trailer donated by Glenn Bealy of Week Farm Torrington.

Then our skilled people built stone walls and laid a firm surface so that Sam can access the garden safely to explore all the plants etc.

It was a very moving experience for Sam, and we are sure he will enjoy his new garden for many years to com.
