The Thyme Together project is a friendly social group for seniors with a focus on activities that enhance health and wellbeing in a natural garden environment. It is an inclusive group which incorporates many aspects of therapeutic horticulture and is comprised of attendees who face a range of issues, from limited mobility, sensory impairment, to cognitive issues, and feelings of social isolation. These sessions are free (subject to grant funding) and transport can be provided by Carebus if you live in the Eastern parishes of West Berkshire.

ANY AGE GROUP

If you have clients who have their own transport but maybe are isolated or have become socially anxious then they could be referred to one our regular volunteer sessions. These offer a wider variety of activities and are sociable but at the same time can offer some peace a quiet if necessary.

Volunteers digging beds in the Five A Day Garden

I really enjoy being part of this group and look forward to our weekly meetings and has been such a bonus being able to use the Village Hall throughout the winter.

Debs and her team who are so caring and have got to know us well as individuals plan a wide range of activities so that there is something for everyone

Volunteering at Five a Day has given me so much at a really tough time in my life and I have met so many great people and made some good friends.  The garden is a lovely place to be, it’s quiet and tranquil and I can see how much everyone who comes to the garden enjoys it and leaves with a smile on their face, including me
