Veronica Brunsdon, the delighted recipient of the latest Muscles for Charity garden makeover, (featured in the centre of the above photograph) commented after the transformation,
“Please pass on my sincere and heartfelt thanks to everyone who came for my ‘makeover’ today. They are such a lovely bunch of people and have again done a wonderful job. I am so pleased with it.”
