Visually-impaired people in a Norwich care home can spend their summer enjoying a new sensory garden - thanks to the generosity of a former resident's family.
High Sheriff of Norfolk Lady Agnew of Oulton officially opened the new garden at the Norfolk & Norwich Association for the Blind's (NNAB) Magpie Road premises.

NNAB chief executive Gina Dormer said: "For visually-impaired people, stimulating their other senses is so important, so this sensory garden will be very much appreciated by our residents and visitors.
"It has taken 18 months of fundraising and hard work by our maintenance team to create this fabulous garden, but that effort will give people here many years of pleasure."
