Walled Garden Update November 3rd 2020

During this current second period of lockdown, we hope to be able to keep the walled garden open for people to continue to enjoy safely.   The paddock parking is closed at present due to poor ground conditions but extra parking space has been made available by the Head Gardener’s house.

There is no access to the bothy, the house or to toilets

Currently, national guidelines for ensuring personal safety are being updated on an almost daily basis.   At the walled garden, our priority is to do what we can to establish a safe environment for our volunteers and visitors.   Many of our volunteers and visitors are in the ‘vulnerable’ category and each person should take whatever steps are needed to protect their own health and that of other garden users.

As in all areas of England, everyone should remember the ‘Hands. Face. Space’ rule

  • hands – wash your hands regularly and for 20 seconds
  • face – wear a face coveringin indoor settings where social distancing may be difficult, and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet
  • space – stay 2 metres apart from people where possible
  • where you cannot stay 2 metres apart you should stay at least 1 metre apart, as well as taking extra steps to stay safe by wearing a face covering in indoor spaces or by moving outdoors where it is safer. If meeting indoors then make sure that rooms are well ventilated by keeping windows and doors open.

You can still travel to other areas, but you are advised to limit your trips as much as possible.
