The gardeners at Cricket St Thomas Hotel were on a mission to transform a garden within the local area to give a very deserving person a space to recoup and enjoy some ‘me time’ over the summer months. 

Warner Leisure Hotels searched high and low by asking people to nominate their local champion, which led them to Allan Clare, 73, from Chard, Somerset.

Allan was a keen gardener and vegetable grower until his severe Arthritis meant he could no longer provide his wife with the fresh produce he prided himself on. The pain he experiences in both knees also means he can no longer take care of his garden, and as result it has become overgrown and the existing vegetable allotment is no more.
