Four Season Birkdale a project for people with learning difficulties to help them prepare fro getting a job

The Four Seasons Garden Centre on Liverpool Rd in Birkdale is well established.  Recently it has become the focus of a scheme which provides training and work opportunities for people with learning difficulties. It was a great pleasure to meet the trainees, volunteers and staff at the project. They have developed some exciting opportunities in the garden centre and caf√©. This week they opened a new enterprise – a shop -on the same site to help raise money for their work.

I was shown around by the trainees and saw the horticulture work. That day they were potting up bulbs for the Christmas market. The young women who has worked so hard to get the new shop under way introduced the new enterprise and got me to cut the ribbon to declare it open
