Park House School have been looking to create a sensory garden for our students over the past months. We are pleased to say that we have received more than six tonnes of free bricks from local building product manufacturer Forterra to help with the project.
Staff from Forterra’s Kings Dyke brickworks in Whittlesey delivered 2,500 of their London Bricks to us to be used in creating a safe sensory garden at the former Methodist Chapel, which is now part of the school. Once completed, the sensory garden will provide a safe, outdoor space for the pupils to explore in a controlled manner.
Park House School Business Manager Luke Rich commented, “We’d like to thank Forterra for their generous donation of bricks, which will make a huge difference towards our garden project.”
Steve Jeynes, Plant Manager at Forterra’s Kings Dyke facility, said; “When we heard about the garden we thought it was a very worthwhile cause that we could readily contribute to……”
Some of the pupils will be putting the bricks to use by attempting to learn a new skill of bricklaying.
Thank you Forterra for your kind donation.
