New garden officially opened at Honiton 55-Plus Centre

A new garden has been formally opened at the Honiton 55-Plus Centre.

The area, boasting a water feature and beautiful planting, was made possible by fundraising by the hub and much-appreciated help from district councillor Phil Twiss.

Today’s special occasion also helped mark the fourth anniversary of the opening of the centre off Orchard Way.

The garden was officially opened by mayor Councillor John Zarczynski, who is also chairman of the day centre.

Work on the area was undertaken by Sidmouth-based MG Wale Landscapes Ltd.

Cllr Zarczynski was joined by Cllr Twiss and landscapers Mike Wale and Jonathon Barker for the launch.

The mayor told East Devon “We’re extremely grateful for all that Cllr Twiss has done for us, to the contractors and everyone who has helped this project come to fruition.”

Cllr Zarczynski told the MG Wale Landscapes team: “You’ve done a brilliant job.”

A previous garden on the same site had fallen into decay and the revamped space will provide an area for centre users to enjoy.

The day centre’s fundraising efforts included table-top sales and raffles.

Formerly St Michael’s care home, the Honiton 55-Plus Centre is a community interest company providing day care, a luncheon club and coffee morning facilities for East Devon residents.
