Lindengate Autumn Open Day – 6th October 2018 2-5pm
Free Entry – All welcome!
On 6th October we will be opening the gates to welcome families interested in the Lindengate services for a family member, professionals who may want to refer their clients, and organisations who may be interested in making us their chosen charity or helping us with volunteer days. It is a chance to explore the site and see the way gardening, crafts, conservation and caring volunteers all come together to create a therapeutic space that really works to improve well-being and promote mental health.
Volunteers will demonstrate a variety of activities, some of which visitors are invited to join in with. This might include planting up hanging baskets, digging up potatoes, a cooking activity, and mosaic work in the Art & Craft polytunnel. Other charities and organisations are also invited to have a stall, showing the support that can be accessed locally for people with mental health needs.
The Mid-shires Orchard Group bring an apple press on the afternoon and the general public are invited to bring their apples for pressing, enabling them to take home fresh apple juice. Whilst the emphasis is on explaining what Lindengate is all about, there is also the chance to sit down in the garden for tea and home-baked goodies.
