My team and I have been keeping a careful eye on the Government guidelines for how businesses can prepare for returning to work following the Coronavirus restrictions, and we’ve put plans into place to help ensure the safety of those working here on the farm and for our guests.
However, our position is unique in as much that we aren’t a public outdoor space you simply wander around. Our workshops and experience days rely on interactive elements and handling equipment key to the success and enjoyment of the day, and while we’re able to mitigate some of the risks, I’m not comfortable with reducing the quality of the experience for you, and some of the perceived potential risk factors.
We were considering running workshops in July and August however, with the recent news regarding the increased rate of infection in Leicester, there’s a renewed uncertainty and reminder to us all just how unstable this virus is.
My farm isn’t going anywhere; we’re here and ready but only when it is both safe to do so, and when your experience remains the very best we can offer. We’ve been busy improving the garden areas, creating new spaces and working on making our award-winning experience days and workshops even better. We’re as excited as you are to get going with them, and I cannot thank you enough for your patience so far.
I’m today making the decision to postpone all workshops and experience days until September. Providing things continue to improve, and not worsen, with regards the virus spread we’ll be releasing our new and improved experience days and workshops then.
A couple of quick reminders:
- Our gift vouchers don’t have an expiry date and there are no additional charges to change your date, so booking onto a date later in 2020, or even in 2021, is absolutely possible.
- We’re adding additional dates to our workshop calendar to ensure we fulfil the demand and anyone impacted by postponed dates due to Coronavirus will get access to those new dates first.
From all of us here, thank you for your continued support and for your patience.
