Sensory Seating at Sedbergh 
We would like to express our thanks to the Sir George Martin Trust for funding our recently installed Sensory Seating area which has been placed around the children's active play area in our grounds. The funding paid for the beautiful benches and sensory plants. We would also like to thank community volunteers Marks & Spencer and Paul Mazacs who worked hard to complete the development. We hope the sensory seats will be enjoyed by the whole community and encourage learning and more wildlife to the area.
