Sensory garden gets the 'royal' seal of approval

Jubilee Seaview
The garden was officially opened by the 'royals', Prince Charles, Camilla and Her Majesty the Queen.

A JUBILEE garden party was staged at Seaview House Care Home in Wick to officially open its new sensory garden.

Celebrating were residents, their families and staff, present and past. There was a champagne and canapé reception served in the garden with "royal" guests attending.

There was a jubilee celebration cake to enjoy and those involved came dressed fit for a royal garden party.

Creating the sensory garden has been a real community effort. Twelve members of staff at Seaview gave up two days of their time to complete the garden, while A. & D. Sutherland quarry in Spittal donated a Caithness stone-lined pillar to display the water feature.

Ellie and Murray Lamont, of Mackays Hotel, Wick, played a big part on the day as they donated their car to drive the ‘royal’ family around the town before arriving at the party.

Murray came along with his Ebenezer’s ice-cream truck and gave out ice cream to the partygoers.

RG Fencing donated several raised planters, Allans of Gillock provided the benches and Amanda’s Florists donated the ribbon for the ‘royal’ car and the garden party.

Subsea 7 also donated £600 from its annual raffle, some of which went towards completing the garden.
