Letter to the Methodist Recorder

Dear Editor,


Attached are photos of the garden outside Ashby Wesley Methodist church in Scunthorpe (Epworth & Scunthorpe circuit). Situated on the corner of a busy High Street, the garden has been designed and created by church member Mr Bob Sheard. I was delighted to see the garden on a visit to my daughter's church earlier this year and on a return visit the other week, I heard how folk are always stopping by, saying they find peace and hope as they watch the garden develop. Bob is there several times a week and he's not just the 'gardener' but a listener to anyone who wants to chat, whether unloading cares or sharing happy times. Ashby Wesley is truly a place of welcome.
