City Hospice’s gardens have been awarded a silver gilt from Wales in Bloom in the category of Health & Social Care Establishments.

Wales in Bloom, the regional arm of the Royal Horticultural Society’s Britain in Bloom, aims to promote civic pride, environmental responsibility and to encourage improvement in the quality of life through community involvement.

The gardens complement the support that the hospice provides; offering tranquil, safe and reflective spaces for anyone visiting the hospice. It features paved pathways for ease of access, bright colours and smells from a range of plants, and the sounds of running water from our fish and wildlife ponds – a true multisensory paradise.

The gardens are designed and maintained by a team of dedicated volunteer gardeners. Each Thursday they come to the hospice site to prune, rake, and plant at our hospice centre in Whitchurch.

Our team of volunteer gardeners turn out whatever the weather all year round. They make the hospice centre the beautiful place it is and provide an invaluable service to patients and families alike. This award is well deserved to our fantastic team. – Alex Fagan, Volunteer Officer

City Hospice’s gardeners previously won an award from the Royal Horticultural Society for their Hospice Garden For Living in 2016.
