Since this Covid-19 Pandemic started we have been closely watching the Governments advice, reading their guidelines and watching what has been going on in other nations. Sadly, we have now taken the tough decision to confirm that there will be no garden open days for the rest of the season. The gardens will remain closed for the remainder of 2020. We will continue to monitor and review the situation as we go through the winter months with a view of opening up again in 2021.
As we have previously said, those with Season Tickets that expire in 2020 should please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you haven’t already done so and we will extend them to expire in 2021 instead.
We are now focussing our attention on trying to work out if it is possible to put some events on at Christmas for the children in terms of the Santa Express. It would definitely not be the same as previous years because of Social Distancing but we are working through what could be achieved within the current guidelines and estimating where the guidelines might be by the time December comes. These thoughts are at a very early stage and will be constantly subject to change as new guidance and advice comes out. We would expect to be publishing something on Saturday 7th November. Please keep monitoring our website and our facebook pages for any further updates that we can provide.
We thank you for your understanding, for staying home and helping to save lives.
