Prime Minister keeps promise to pensioners

PRIME Minister Theresa May officially opened a new sensory garden at a care home in Wargrave.

PRIME Minister Theresa May officially opened a new sensory garden at a care home in Wargrave.

The Maidenhead MP kept a promise to visit The Mount in School Hill after meeting residents at a party to mark the Queen’s 90th birthday in Twyford in June.

The home’s staff had expected her to cancel after she became PM.

Manager Emma Fielder said: “At the garden party she came over and started chatting to our residents, who asked her to open the garden and she stuck to that. She’s a lovely person.”

The garden was created thanks to donations from local businesses including Waitrose and Ladds and Wyevale garden centres. Volunteers from Yeldall Manor rehabilitation centre in Hare Hatch helped build it.

Miss Fielder said: “Now residents, relatives and staff at the home can go out there to sit and enjoy nature.”
