"We truly do live and work in a wonderful part of the world and as we move into an extended period of lockdown the stories of community spirit, acts of kindness and generosity continue to inspire us too. 

Last week a local artificial grass company called Namgrass based at the Redcliffe Garden Centre in New Milton heard that the 1.4 million key workers on the front line were concerned over the mental health of their co-workers.

Jared Gardner, Sales Director at Namgrass, said:

"Everyone here at Namgrass recognises the amazing work carried out by frontline medics, and we hope that by supporting this life-saving hospital we are able to play a small part in helping the NHS during the COVID-19 pandemic. We can’t thank the NHS heroes enough for what they’re doing for us at this time."

Resources to achieve the wellbeing garden have all been donated by small to medium sized businesses of which Namgrass is just one.  All very uplifting!
