A brief bit about Twigs: ‘TWIGS (Therapeutic Work In Gardening Swindon) came into being in November 1997. It was created by Pride of Swindon winner Anne Billingham, who realised the therapeutic benefits that working with nature could bring to those experiencing mental health problems. At first TWIGS operated from the old Swindon Borough Council (SBC) Amenity Horticulture buildings (where the Manor Garden Centre now stands) and volunteers provided gardening and craft activities for around eight people.’

‘Friends of Twigs is an independent charity which gives financial and practical support to TWIGS and the Olive Tree Café, two mental health projects in Swindon. We have no administration costs.’
