New look hospital garden is unveiled
A NEW-look garden, crafted by the hard work of volunteers, was unveiled last week at Broomfield Hospital.
The Mayor of Chelmsford Alan Arnot officially opened the therapies garden that had received a major makeover.
Commenting on the garden, he said: “As a hospital patient myself it is lovely to come along and see another element of hospital life.
“The garden looks lovely and I am sure it will be enjoyed by many people.”
Trust chairman, Professor Sheila Salmon, said: “This really is a new beginning, as we have restored the garden to how it should be.
