Helen Visits Sissinghurst Scouts

Helen Grant MP, the Member of Parliament for Maidstone and The Weald, met with Sissinghurst Scouts on Saturday to officially open their 2013 Project – a 'Sensory Perception Room' and garden. She visited Cranbrook's Hartley House Residential Care Home where the Scouts' 2012 project 'Freda Garden' was also located.

Helen was invited by local Scout Leader, Terry Davies, who named the garden after his late mother, Freda, a former resident at the home. Helen talked with the Scouts, Cubs and Beavers about their work within the local community before planting an Acer tree in 'Freda Garden'.

Helen said: "It was a delightful visit and I was so impressed by both Terry and the Scouts and their dedication to helping our community. The residents of Hartley House, particularly those with sensory impairments, benefit greatly from the gardens and murals that have been so lovingly created by the children".

Terry Davies said: "The Sissinghurst Scout Group were delighted to show their work to Helen for Scout Community Week 2013, where they replanted a garden for the residents and prepared murals for the new 'Sensory Perception Garden'".
