A sensory garden at a Presbyterian Church residential home for people with profound learning and physical disabilities has opened.

The facility at Aaron House in Dundonald was opened on Saturday. Lee-Ann Nesbitt, who attends the day care centre, and Aaron House resident Niall Campbell cut the ribbon with Presbyterian Moderato the Right Rev Dr William Henry and BBC Gardeners' Corner presenter David Maxwell.

Head of day care at Aaron House Francis Mooney said: "In its various phases, it has taken around 10 years to complete and has been a labour of love, not only for our residents, service users and their families, but for staff and the local support group and committee."

The Dundonald home in the Ballybeen estate opened in 1995 and accommodates 14 residents permanently and two residents each week for respite care.
