The courtyard now features colourful flowers, fruit trees, solar lights, wall art, water barrels, wind chimes, bird feeders and comfortable seating.

Annie Cowell, from the care centre, said: “Our residents had a fabulous day watching the project come to life and now have a beautiful space for peace, relaxation, gardening, meeting friends and family.”

Staff thanked the beavers and cubs and all the businesses who donated to the project.

The beavers and scouts will continue to use the courtyard for camping, barbecues and to spend time with the residents.
