THE Lumphinnans Care Village sensory garden officially opens today.

The Cedar Avenue, facility has been a major community project which will benefit the residents of the care village, many who suffer from dementia.

Local fundraisers Dick Campbell and Ron Shevas, along with Fife Sensory Gardens, have been instrumental in raising over £40,000.

Said a spokesperson for the project: "The design and planting by students from Elmwood College is complimented by wooden planters and a pergola made by the Community Payback Team.

"The local primary school have named the beautiful sensory garden which has been developed on the grounds of the care village. Pop along and see the garden and the enjoyment it will bring to the residents".

Today's opening ceremony will take place at 2pm when the residents, their family and friends, care village staff, fundraisers, representatives from Fife Health and Social Care Partnership, Fife Council, Elmwood College and Lumphinnans Primary School will all be there.
