Grantham Additional Needs Fellowship (GANF) raised £24,000 for the garden, £19,000 of which came from The Wolfson Foundation.

The garden was created by local firm Red Sky Landscapes and was opened in memory of former pupil Molly Brown, whose family attended the opening.

Stela Plamenova, Principal of Sandon School, said: “I am delighted to see the new Sensory Garden at Sandon School officially opened and all the team work that has taken place behind the scenes of such a worthwhile project.

“The garden has been installed in memory of a former Sandon pupil, Molly Brown. Molly’s family were thrilled to see the new learning environment. At Sandon we will continue to work hard to ensure that the school continues to flourish and maintains its ‘outstanding’ family feel.”
