CRL teamed up with Kier to improve the garden areas for service users and staff at Vale View Day Care Centre in Lancaster.
Vale View Day Care Centre offer a safe space, hot meals and activities to adults in the community with learning disabilities. They do brilliant work and CRL are proud to have been able to help in a small way.
Like many care centres, outdoor spaces play an integral role at Vale View, providing scope for a range of activities and a nice place to spend time. Sadly, years of neglect due to Covid had seen the gardens look dated and in great need of sprucing up. The Centre were unable to undertake the works themselves, and Kier kindly arranged to lend a hand, inviting CRL in the process.
Five CRL colleagues spent the day at the Centre helping to repair and paint three raised flower-beds, paint a wooden arbor, repair a dislodged manhole cover and provide general garden maintenance in addition to donating materials. The CRL and Kier team made a real difference to the garden which was hugely appreciated by the Centre and no doubt will improve use of the garden in the future. We hope the service users and staff enjoy their rejuvenated garden!
