Our continued thanks to RHS Chelsea Flower Show

Each year, the RHS Chelsea Flower Show welcomes thousands of visitors from across the country to enjoy all the gardening delights on offer. Of course, this year was a little different, with the show going virtual due to Covid-19, however this didn’t stop us celebrating all the benefits gardening and the show has provided C&I.
Back in 2018, C&I won the Feel Good Garden, thanks to a Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) competition, which has benefitted both staff and service users.
In a Guardian article, Andrew Kingston, Recovery Service Manager and Olivia Hull, Acting Ward Manager, speak about the benefits on the benefits the Feel Good Garden is having on both our staff and service users, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic. Following social distancing guidelines, staff have supported patients to get out into the garden to enjoy the greenery and the start of the sunnier weather.
Andrew said: “Each time the Chelsea Flower Show comes around, it reminds us just how grateful we are for our Feel Good Garden. We know that this year, for those who usually attend the show whether it is as a visitor or gardener themselves, it was a little different. But I hope like us at Highgate Mental Health Centre, people were still able to enjoy the essence of what the show is all about and appreciate the benefits green spaces and gardening have on our mental wellbeing.”
