Llanhennock Lodge have large outdoor gardens and grounds which are enjoyed by the residents for outdoor activities and relaxation. It would be very beneficial to enhance the garden area making it more attractive and accessible. This would include garden maintenance, clearing vegetation, tidying existing beds, pruning, painting railings, building some basic raised beds and staining benches etc.
There is also an activity room which is regularly used by the residents for fun and development activities. The room is rather drab and could do with some TLC and brightening up. This would include painting the walls in more attractive colours would make a huge difference together with restaining the floor.
