Families invited to opening event for multi-sensory garden


A new multi-sensory garden will be unveiled in Storrington next week.

Families are being invited to experience the new garden when it is unveiled at Little Footsteps Children and Family Centre on June 28.

The multi-sensory garden is made of completely recycled materials and aims to encourage outdoor play using all the senses.

There will be a sound wall, a water and ball play wall, a digging area and herbs for encouraging smell and exploration.

With a number of family homes having limited outside space, it is hoped that the garden will become an important place for families to play in and be inspired by, as well as providing a way to improve children’s learning and development.

Open to all families, the free unveiling event is being held on Tuesday June 28 from 10am to 12pm at the centre in West Street, Storrington.

There will be a number of activities including crafts, soft play, painting and a gazebo with snacks and a healthy eating activity. No tickets required.
