This is the headline to the Swindon Advertiser article on the Windswept Unit winning an AWP in Bloom award.

AWP in Bloom started in April and involved 10 mental health teams and service users competing to convert an unused area at their sites into a produce and flower garden.

Service users, staff and volunteers at Windswept, a rehabilitation unit based at Sandalwood Court, have worked tirelsssly clearing thickets and brambles to create a vegetable patch, flower and herb beds.

However, the project has produced more than greenery, giving service users something constructive and rewarding to do as well as building relationships with staff and volunteers.

Windswept was judged the 'Best team in promoting recovery through service user involvement' and were proud to receive their engraved AWP in Bloom plaque last week from Paula May Locality Manager.

The other winning team for 'biggest transformation' went to Amblescroft South, Fountain Way, Salisbury.
