A Suffolk council is seeking help to turn a underused park area into a sensory garden. 

Woodbridge Town Council is looking for help to renovate the Melon Pit area of Elmhurst Park. 

The area was once home to two-tier glasshouses but these were removed in 2009 and now the council hopes it can redevelop the area into a high-level sensory garden.

It is looking to work in partnership with the local community and potential user groups to form a small project team to kickstart the project. 

A spokesman for the council said: "Whilst all offers of help will be greatly received, we would love to hear from individuals or organisations with a knowledge of landscape gardening and disability support through community projects and gardens, who are willing to offer advice and time to ensure we create a space suitable for everyone."
