North Tyneside Disability Forum has created a new sensory garden.

Officials at North Tyneside Disability Forum have spent the last few months creating and working on their new accessible/sensory garden.

And following all of their hard work, a special ceremony is taking place on Friday to officially unveil the new attraction at the Shiremoor Centre, in Earsdon Road, Shiremoor.

The event will start at noon. There will be a light lunch and information sharing session about forthcoming activities at the Forum – including line dancing, festive dates, music and moving, staying safe and looking after yourself.

Attendees will then make their way to the garden and hear first hand from a volunteer, take part in planting and help bless the gardn, which received £8,000 from Tesco’s Bags of Help initiative. Everyone is welcome to attend.
