Their landscaped gardens currently include; a fairy tale forest area, greenhouse, outdoor boules court, chicken coop and a modern water feature with a fish pond as its centre piece.

Resident, Amy Cooke, 90 said: “It was lovely to see so many people strolling around the garden and I enjoyed chatting to quite a few about the future plans we have been making for it.”
