To vote for ‘Making our Healing Garden accessible and safe for ALL’
‘Making our Healing Garden accessible and safe for all abilities’ at Heads Up in Wells has been announced as a finalist in the Jewson Building Better Communities competition, and is now in with the chance of winning a share of a £100,000 fund.
Heads Up is calling on local residents to vote for the project online.
Sadie Lampert, representative of ‘Making our Healing Garden accessible and safe for all abilities’ at Heads Up, Wells urges locals to get voting: “To have been nominated and shortlisted is a great achievement, but it’s important people get behind the project and vote so that we can secure the funds to do vital work in the community.
“We have strong links with our community and rely heavily on their support. We are always looking for ways to improve their experience when visiting us and like to repay them in some way for their support, therefore we have open days and coffee mornings and are always very keen to share with people the work that takes place here. We are also conscious of the safety of our clients and visitors whilst working in, or visiting our Healing Garden. Currently we need new, stronger fencing along the ramps leading to our garden which is especially important for wheelchair user safety.”
As part of its Building Better Communities project, Jewson asked communities to nominate a project to win a share of the £100,000, which could be spent on anything from a new roof on the village hall to a much needed coat of paint for a long-forgotten public space.
David Fenton, Marketing Director at Jewson said, "Throughout our 179 year history, we've played an active part in the communities in which we operate, but with Building Better Communities we're taking that a step further by giving local people the support they need to make a genuine difference to where they live.
“Now the shortlist has been decided, residents within the Wells area must get behind projects in order for them to win a share of the prize, helping to improve the community.”
