Coronavirus Update – January 2021

In the light of the current deterioration in the national Coronavirus situation and the government’s overriding message that people should stay at home, we have consulted with the relevant garden owners and agreed that the small number of openings due to take place in January are either cancelled or postponed.

We will also review garden openings planned for the coming weeks on a regular, fortnightly basis. On 25th January we will review whether it is appropriate for gardens due to open in the first two weeks of February to open during that time.

If it is decided that openings cannot go ahead, where possible they will be postponed and in these instances anyone who has purchased tickets for a postponed opening will be offered the alternative date. If cancellation is necessary anyone who has purchased a ticket will receive a full refund.

Our foremost priorities are to comply with Government guidelines, to ensure the health and safety of our garden owners, visitors, volunteers and staff, and to support the Government’s work to control the pandemic and to protect the NHS. Please click here for the latest Government guidelines.

If you have any specific queries please contact the National Garden Scheme office: 01483 211535, or hello@ngs.org.uk. This statement will be updated whenever necessary to take account of revisions to the regulations and guidelines for both England and Wales.
