Marie Curie's garden in full bloom ready to welcome visitors

Solihull Editorial 19th Jun, 2024   0

THE GARDENS at Solihull’s Marie Curie Hospice are in full bloom ready to welcome visitors this weekend.

Volunteer gardeners will be on hand between 11am and 4pm on Sunday (June 23) to show visitors around and answer any questions as part of the National Garden Scheme.

They will also be discussing the work of Marie Curie in the community.

Do Connolly from Solihull who has been volunteering in the garden at the Marsh Lane hospice since it opened in 2013 said: “The patient rooms at the hospice are all arranged around the gardens giving easy access to both patients and their families and are such an important part of the hospice.

“Our team of 27 volunteers have been working hard throughout the year to ensure the garden is looking beautiful and full of colour and a peaceful space for our patients, families, staff, and volunteers to enjoy and spend some time with nature.

“Visitors can buy something for their own garden from the plant stall, take part in a silent auction or try their luck at the tombola. Tea and cakes will be available in the garden and in the hospice Bistro and games provided to keep the children entertained.”

The Hospice offers in-patient care, a Support and Wellbeing Hub, specialist care at home and bereavement support to adults, children and young people.

Refreshments will be available to purchase and visitors are invited to take part in fundraising games.

Entry to the gardens costs £4 per person (children free) and tickets can be purchased in advance at or in person on the day.
