The project, due to start on April 15, is a collaboration between the council’s parks and open space and special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) teams and has been given a cash injection of £40,000 from the East London Foundation NHS Trust.

Work is expected to last six weeks.

Claire Pick, the council’s environmental development and viability officer, said: "We are excited to bring this project to life, not only rejuvenating the Time Gardens but also creating a welcoming space where individuals of all abilities can unwind and connect with nature."

Kerri Rennie, Bedford Borough Parent Carer Forum (BBPCF) added: “This will be a great addition to improve and enhance our parks and outdoor spaces, bringing communities together to improve health and wellbeing. ”
