SDN thanks the Albrighton Trust for sharing with us what they have been doing during lockdown.
The Albrighton Trust were delighted to welcome back some of their garden buddies groups who have not been able to work in the gardens since lockdown. The charity has kept in touch with everyone by hosting group Zoom meeting each week. During lockdown garden buddies received some garden boxes from the charity that included seeds and accessories so they could carry on gardening and growing while they were at home, the charity also popped in a few personal goodies for everyone to keep spirits up.

The garden buddies have been sending in photographs to show how their plants have been growing. The charity set up a shared dropbox folders so everyone could see how their friends plants are also growing. The weekly virtual meetings have been a wonderful way for everyone to stay in touch with friends and know that they are all safe; but you can’t beat meeting face to face. The charity has reintroduced their gardening sessions ensuring that no more than 6 people are working together outside and keeping a safe distance apart in line with the current government guidelines. The charity provides educational and recreational activities for people disadvantaged by physical and learning disabilities and ill health.
