MENTAL health nurses are working hard to create a relaxing place in their courtyard garden at Airedale Hospital.

The hospital's Health Liaison Team Garden tend the garden in their own time and find funding through donations.

The team's efforts have been highlighted by Laura Bolton, whose sister Carole Hodge is a Mental Health Nurse in the A&E department.

Laura said: "My eight-year-old daughter Freya Townend helped with weeding prior to lockdown.

"During lockdown she has made posters for the windows, made lollipop stick plant pot labels that people can buy in the department for a small donation, and been busy painting rocks to brighten up the garden."

"The team are working hard to try and make it as pretty as possible given the current conditions."

Freya has made £10 so far by selling the plant pot labels, and the donations will go towards bedding plants and packets of seeds.
