Have your say

A sensory garden at a Castleford school has been transformed thanks to staff at a nearby supermarket.

Eight volunteers from Asda in Glass Houghton spent the day at the Pathways School, Townville, last week to help spruce up the garden.

The facility has a number of therapeutic features to help pupils with special educational needs play and learn outdoors.

It had become overgrown during the winter – which is where staff from the Leeds Road store stepped in to help.

Louise Brown, community life champion at Asda, said: “We consider ourselves a big part of the community in Glass Houghton and Castleford and to give our time to something so worthwhile is a great feeling – we’re so pleased to help the school.”

Jonathan Gill, from Pathways School, said: “The garden will be a haven for pupils and staff. It’s designed to be both a stimulating and calm environment for our pupils and is really popular with everyone in the school. We are so grateful to Asda staff for their help with this project.”
