In a true show of community support, Bournville College’s Construction students put their studying to the test for Meadow Rose’s wheelchair users in the designing, planning, and construction of a raised flowerbed. Having been in high demand, the flowerbed will allow residents using wheelchairs to experience the benefits of gardening, and tend to their own flora in an enriching environment, catered specifically to them.
The team commissioned for this special project consisted of Level 1 Construction Skills and Level 3 Bricklaying students, all working together to put their learnt skills into practice. From fulfilling a client brief to working in high temperatures with great prowess, the students of Bournville College enjoyed the challenge, and we could not be happier with the results! With this new raised flowerbed, we see many blooms on the horizon for Meadow Rose.
On the project, Daryl Poole, Level 3 Bricklaying student, spoke to Community News and said, “It’s really great that we could utilise the range of skills we learnt on the course and be able to support Meadow Rose Nursing Home. We enjoyed working with the Care Home team in putting the project into action.”
