Hidden away in Cheney Manor Industrial Estate is one of Swindon’s best kept secrets. Behind beautiful wrought iron gates lies an oasis of peace and tranquillity with a real sense of purpose. RF TWIGS (Therapeutic Work In Gardening in Swindon) gives people with mental health problems an opportunity to regain confidence and self-esteem and to learn new skills. We help to make recovery a reality.
Come and visit – have a wander in the themed gardens, pick up ideas, sit and enjoy the peace, and buy a plant to take home.
Then why not treat yourself to a home-cooked lunch or piece of delicious cake at The Olive Tree Café next door in Manor Garden Centre. The café provides further opportunities to learn new skills and build confidence, and has already made a huge difference to the lives of many people who come to RF TWIGS.
