Families staying at Chorley’s women’s refuge can now enjoy being outdoors thanks to improvements to the garden.

The refuge’s garden was rarely used by children staying there.

But it has now been improved thanks to a grant from Chorley Community Housing’s neighbourhood fund.

The money has paid for play equipment for the children, as well as new bin stores, a shed and planter.

The garden now covers a larger space and is being used by the children and families staying at the refuge.

Samantha Hornsby, neighbourhood development officer for Chorley Community Housing, said: “It’s great to be able to support a project such as this.

“The families who pass through the scheme deserve to enjoy the garden and have a bit of fun.”

Sherish Aslam, who works at the refuge, said: “Thank you so much to CCH.

“This work will be of great benefit to the clients here. They will be able to share some much-needed mum and me time.”
