Our garden project – update
The heavy setting the scene work was completed and some sensory resources were added early 2020.
We have managed to secure funding to purchase new equipment and resources including:
– a mud kitchen
– an outdoor magnetic board, chalk board and painting screen
– a seated area
– a sensory pathway
– sensory items for the fences
– table tennis set
– accessible sandpit
– accessible table and chair / picnic table sets
– new shed and bike storage
– water wall
Some of these items need built and installed but we are certainly getting near the end of developing this space for our children and young people to enjoy.

Our team have had some fabulous creative ideas for our space and its great to have others in the community help deliver these:
Before and after pictures – Stage 1:
A group of staff at PLUS have volunteered their time, energy and creative sparks to help improve the outside space for the children and young people who attend PLUS.
The team started in 2019 along with the help of a number of volunteers from local businesses:
- Enterprise Cars staff came in for a day of volunteering where they began the work to overhaul our space with a lot of weeding, clearing and painting.
- The Stirling Council Community Payback team came in and worked on levelling the outside space, doing some real heavy work with slabs and improving the layout.
- We had volunteers from Stirling University come and paint for us.
- We had B&Q staff who painted outside, built a shed, installed a trampoline and created a sensory walkway for our children and young people to enjoy.
- The Mens Pallet Workshop in Kildean made the grass topped tyres, wigwam and the low level mud kitchen.
- Crafty Living donated an adult size accessible mud kitchen.
We are so grateful to all the volunteers who helped with the hard work and also to those that donated materials – wood, paint, tools etc.
HUGE THANKS to all those who have supported our project.
