Willow Wood’s gardens are glorious, and are used throughout the warmer months by patients, visitors, staff and volunteers alike as a peaceful place to sit, to stroll, to relax and to reflect.
However, we’d love to extend the time we can use them, and have come up with the idea of our ‘Garden of 1,000 lights’. From 21 November every Tuesday and Thursday evening between 6-8pm our beautifully maintained gardens will be ablaze with lights. Trees will be wrapped in twinkling lights, glowing stars hang from branches, spotlights illuminate the landscaping and there’ll even be a Christmas tableau.
These brilliant displays will, of course, be visible from all our patient rooms; however, the effect will be so stunning that we’d like to open our doors to anyone who wishes to see them. There will be no charge to enter but we’ll be serving hot drinks, Baileys, mulled wine, homemade mince pies and a selection of cakes.
All these lights have been donated to Willow Wood, and our thanks to all contributors, especially Daisy Nook Garden Centre for their generous donation and Diane Barlow and Katy Mitchell for the wonderful Santa and sleigh! Further donations of outdoor lights would still be very much appreciated!
