Coronavirus Update

On the evening of the 8th September the Government announced a new restriction that no more than six people can gather together at any one time for a private party in a home, garden or at other premises.

The new regulation will not impact on our garden openings. These are not private parties, they are fundraising events for which people have to purchase a ticket in advance in order to attend. Since our gardens started opening again at the beginning of June all openings have been managed with strict social distancing and observation of other relevant Government regulations and guidelines. This will not change.

Further advice was issued by the government on the 22nd September but we do not believe this to have any impact on our garden openings for the rest of the season.

We will update you again as and when appropriate. In the meantime, many thanks for your support for the National Garden Scheme during this most challenging of years. You have supported with great generosity the fundraising campaign and we have managed to make up some of the lost income from gardens.  This campaign will continue until the end of the year.
