PUPILS at Meldreth Manor School are enjoying a new sensory garden due to the green-fingered staff at a company.

The team of 20 employees from 1Spatial in Cambridge participated in a Community Challenge and transformed six sites in the school's grounds into sensory gardens.

School principal Eric Nash said "We are extremely grateful to the team.

"Without their help we would have been unable to complete the make-over the grounds so desperately needed."

The challenge, organised by Hertfordshire-based team building and training events company Kaboura Training and environmental charity Groundwork, saw staff digging and clearing the sites and more than 220 plants added to the grounds.

Jo Shannon, team leader at 1Spatial, said: "We are really excited to be involved in a project that not only provides 1Spatial with a valuable team building exercise, but also offers a benefit to the community."

Meldreth Manor School caters for pupils who suffer from cerebral palsy and severe learning difficulties and is run by charity Scope.
