WINSLOW Court residents celebrated the opening of a brand new horticulture and pottery facility at a special open day.
Leominster MP Bill Wiggin watched managing director Jon Fennessy open the new garden at the care home in Rowden, near Bromyard, that his firm Heritage Environmental Contractors helped create.
It will now be used to launch a community enterprise selling fresh produce.
A new pottery site where ceramic goods will be created by those who live there for a similar purpose was also unveiled.
On the same day five young adults with learning difficulties also received their bronze award Duke of Edinburgh certificates as the first ever in Herefordshire to do so.
DEA development officer Malcolm Mason made the presentation after Steffan Davis, Andrew Williams, Luke Buckley, Sarah Brooks and Sagar Sahni entered fund-raising events such as Sport Relief and Malvern’s 1km Chicken Run, made homemade produce, undertook volunteer work and camped out at Dinedor Outdoor Centre to complete the scheme.
