RBS International staff rescue St. Saviour Community Centre’s sensory garden

As part of RBS International’s ongoing community investment efforts, ten staff in Guernsey recently spent their weekend starting work aimed at restoring a sensory garden to its original glory.

The former Mont Varouf School is currently being converted into a community centre for residents of St. Saviour and a number of employees will be returning to the sensory garden over the coming weekends to finalise the work and then to plant various shrubs to make the area more attractive.

Liz Pirouet, Service Delivery Manager at RBS International, led the team. She commented “we had an enjoyable day hacking our way into the garden and clearing the path of weeds. There was a real sense of achievement at the end of the day and I am delighted that bank employees will be taking on further work to prepare the garden for the enjoyment of St Saviour’s residents.”
