This week is Learning Disability Week.

Connect Hackney partners, St Mary’s Secret Garden, run the Garden Social at St Mary’s Secret Garden – a weekly club for people with learning disabilities aged over 50.

The Club brings people together to work on shared gardening and maintenance activities. There are also opportunities for the ‘Garden Socialisers’ to plan and develop the club’s social activities.

Raymond, one of the Garden Socialisers said: “The place I used to garden every week closed and I missed it a lot. I’m very happy to use the skills I have learnt over the years to help at St Mary’s Secret Garden. “

“I’m very thankful and grateful to be able to come to the garden and spend time with other people – I think it’s a wonderful place!”

The garden is now in full bloom – check it out!
