Not So Secret Garden

Not So Secret Garden Radio Clatterbridge went green today, when the station broadcast the official opening of a new hospital garden. Staff and patients at the Wirral Neurological Rehabilitation Unit kept their green fingers crossed for spring sunshine, and they weren't disappointed! The garden is a great area for patients to relax, but also has different surfaces to assess how they will manage in their wheelchairs when they leave hospital. Presenter Vic Charles captured the proceedings for listeners who were unable to make it to the ceremony. He also interviewed volunteers and unit manager Mark Dillon.
