CONSTRUCTION students from Grantham College have been helping to make improvements to the gardens at Gregory House Nursing Home.

The group, led by tutor Nick Perry, built three brick planters and a wishing well for residents at the home. The planters were built at low-level to allow access for wheelchair users.

Nick said: “It’s been a community project, and we’re open to doing others if people want to get in touch with us.”

Materials for the project were donated by Jacksons, Goldholme Stone, Fairway Fixings and Woodlines.
