To keep everyone safe and well while shopping with us, we will be operating social distancing and strict hygiene measures on our site, in line with our health and safety advisor and the government’s guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19.

  • We have reviewed our layout to allow for social distancing in both shops. There is a limited number of entry and exit points into and out of the garden centre and coffee shop. These are clearly marked and wheelchair accessible.
  • There is a limit on the number of customers inside at any time. We can currently invite a maximum of 8 customers into the garden centre at any one time, 4 customers in the coffee shop, and 5 customers in the charity shop.
  • A member of our staff will meet you on entry to greet you with a smile and explain our social distancing measures to provide reassurance.
  • Temporary markings are in place to help people queue safely and keep at least 2 metres from each other.
  • Clear signage is on display, explaining the social distancing measures in place that customers should follow.
  • We are working together with our neighbours Daily Bread Cooperative to manage shared queuing areas on our site.
  • Hand sanitiser is available to use on entry
  • Additional cleaning and sanitising is taking place, including on shopping trolleys after each use.
  • Please shop alone where possible.
  • You should not visit if you are in a medically vulnerable group with underlying health conditions.
  • Toilet facilities will not be available on site.
  • Customers will need to consume food and drink away from the site, to reduce gatherings on site.
  • And finally, we encourage you to pay with a contactless card wherever possible in order to reduce the risk further.
