The Shakespeare Hospice is delighted to unveil its brand-new courtyard at its site in Shottery.
The courtyard has undergone some significant renovation work since January this year and now includes a variety of new plants, as well as sensory areas and water features. The space is ideal for visitors to enjoy some peace and quiet with loved ones, or to have a quiet chat with the Hospice’s clinicians.
The idea of the sensory garden was introduced by Sir Peter Rigby, Executive Chairman of Rigby Group (RG) Plc and Honorary Patron of The Shakespeare Hospice, designed in conjunction with Taylor Landscape & Design, and has been funded by The Rigby Foundation.
Tracey Sheridan, CEO of The Shakespeare Hospice said: “As the Hospice continues to welcome more visitors, it was agreed that our courtyard was long overdue for some care and attention. The vastly improved courtyard will, once again, provide a much-needed space for quiet reflection for patients, their loved ones, and carers, just in time for the summer. We are delighted with the new look and are very grateful to Taylor Landscape & Design, not only for their hard work since the start of the year, but for their perseverance with the changing weather. We are also incredibly grateful to our Patron, Sir Peter Rigby, for enabling this project.”
