Volunteers have spent eight weeks improving a sensory garden at a primary school.

Colnbrook School, in South Oxhey, has seen a transformation of an overgrown outdoor space into an inclusive garden for learning.

The Green Teamers have created several new planting areas, replaced an entrance gate and fencing, and created a new accessible path for wheelchairs.

Head teacher Caroline Aplin said: "The team have worked so hard to transform the outside learning space beyond what we thought was imaginable. The children benefit so much from the garden.

"This inclusive garden will provide opportunities for many children for many years to come." The volunteers took part in the Green Team, a project run by community charity Groundwork East, and funded by Hertfordshire Community Foundation, the locality budget scheme, Friends of Colnbrook, and the community funding scheme.

Matt Sutcliffe, Groundwork's employment project tutor, added: "It was great to transform an overgrown area into a space that will be well used and enjoyed by the pupils. The group of volunteers have been a pleasure to work with as they were extremely hard working."

The participants have worked towards a qualification in practical horticulture which will help boost their employment prospects.
