Peace Garden wins medal

One of the gardens at this years RHS Flower Show Tatton Park was the Peace Garden.

The garden was created by Manchester based charity Nacro who are celebrating 50 years of offering supported housing for homeless service users who are marginalised from society.

The design depicted a bohemian-style garden, colourful, relaxed and calming, creating a mood of happiness. It also included 22 wooden doves to represent the 22 innocent victims of the Manchester bomb attack.

After a visit by the judges the colourful garden was awarded a Silver medal

And when the show is over the peace garden will be transported to a recently opened Nacro project for homeless ex servicemen, in partnership with Walking With The Wounded.

Premier’s Northern Correspondent Ian Britton took a moment to relax in the garden with Carol Flynn from Nacro.
