The Bradbury Wellbeing Centre is located in Durrington, Worthing. The day centre runs a service called Time Out for Carers which offers respite to dementia carers by providing their loved ones with activities, meaningful occupation and opportunities for socialising. The centre has a small garden where members can relax and enjoy the seasonal colours of flowers, vegetables and shrubs.

We are hoping to find a small team of gardeners who would enjoy some seasonal planting and keeping a watchful eye on the garden throughout the year. All tools, plants, compost etc... would be provided.
