Headway Shropshire Garden Project

Thursday, May 26, 2016

The Headway Shropshire garden has had a make over with help from a team of volunteers from BT and Nikki from Top Notch Gardens. A bank of earth has been removed to widen the pathway to the top of the garden, all fences and rails have been painted, a fence has been built at back of garden, weeding of paved areas and planting of herbs, vegetable and trees. The garden now looks amazing and can be enjoyed by the clients at the centre throughout the year.



We are very grateful to all the local businesses who donated all the item to enable the project to go ahead.

Carers Support Group

Carers Support Group


The effects of acquired brain injury are so wide, so unique and also often invisible that many carers, family members and friends find it difficult to get support they need.  What carers have in common with each other is the need to share stories and know that people really listen and understand.  Our carer group is to meet other people in the same situation, to value each others ideas and experiences, to have a break and to get practical information.

A recent donation enabled us to organise a Pamper evening for members of our carers group.  They had a wonderful evening where they were treated to facials and head massage and the opportunity to have their hair styled and nails painted. 


 

Future dates for our Carer Evening at 6pm till 7.30pm at Headway Shropshire
