21st February 2018 The Walled Garden Project is back..!

We didn't go anywhere, but The Walled Garden Website had been down since Sunday morning, the hosting company we were with ceased trading and we knew nothing about this, until we were told later Sunday evening that the website had gone. We have since found a new UK based hosting company, who have been extremely helpful and patient with our frustrated web designer.
We have a NEW Games tab, if you would like to test your skills and we hope you enjoy them. Thank you for visiting.

We would like to thank The Sheriffhales WI for their kind donation. The WI members worked throughout the last 12 month period raising funds by various means. The Committee then decide which local Charities will benefit. We were very pleased and grateful they chose to support The Walled Garden Project. Thank you Ladies.



16th and 17th February 2017

Rozz Crockford (Project Manager) and Emma Wilkes (Assistant Manager) attended a two day foundation Makaton course. This was held at Green Park School where we deliver an 'On School Site' Package. The course was very intense but great fun too. Makaton is used by everyone at Green Park which increases equal opportunities. Emma and I now find ourselves using Makaton sign language throughout our daily routine.

The Makaton Vocabulary provides an approach to the teaching of communication and language skills, using manual signs and/or graphic symbols, accompanied by speech. The vocabulary is open ended, based around a common core of functional concepts. It originated in the United Kingdom, and is now used internationally by students with a wide variety of language and communication difficulties, and those who share their lives.

If you would like to know more about Makaton visit www.makaton.org
