Hi, I recieved a message from Jemma Winter regarding a day centre for adults with learning disabilities based in West Bagborough,Taunton.

Thanks, Caroline

'We have secured rental of an acre of land that we aim to transform in to allotments, a sensory garden, a games area and a relaxation spot for our service users and the wider community to enjoy.

As it is a big area and a job that will require a lot of work, we are seeking help from anyone who may be in a position to offer that help.

We would be very welcoming of anyone in your service, coming along to help.

As a gesture of goodwill, in return for their services, we will offer unlimited tea, coffee, soups and hot chocolate.
