WOMEN attending a South Yorkshire support centre have a place to relax in peace and tranquillity - after a new sensory garden was opened.

The facility has been created at the Tassibee Centre, in Rotherham, used by South Asian women.

It has been created as a space for rest and peace for carers and elderly people and gardening activity for disabled women.

The garden was opened by Deputy Mayor Coun Dave Pickering and Coun Mahroof Hussain, Rotherham Council’s cabinet member for community development.

A bench in the garden was dedicated to Tassibee member Sadar Begum, who recently died.

Funding for the project has come from Awards for All, South Yorkshire Community Fund, NHS Rotherham, Voluntary Action Rotherham and Inclusion North.

Tassibee is a charity specialising in helping women from ethnic minorities.
