Welcome to Helmsley Walled Garden
Coronavirus Update – Monday March 30th 2020
Helmsley Walled Garden will be closed for the duration of the Coronavirus outbreak. We are saddened to have to do this but the health of all our staff, volunteers, visitors and supporters is the most important thing to us right now.
This is a difficult time and we want in whatever small way to do what we can to help everyone to stay in touch. We are all on furlough and will not have access to the garden. But I will be continuing to post on our social media: Facebook, Twitter and Instagram from my own garden. It won’t be the same but we will be able to follow spring’s progress, there’ll be hints and tips for your own garden and there will be some light-hearted material too.
Please stay in touch, contribute to any of our social media and suggest things you might want to hear about.
We will be watching the situation closely and will reopen when it is safe to do so.
We are of course dependent on the income we get from visitor entry and our Friends to carry on maintaining and developing the garden and supporting those who need us. If you can make a donation please either send a cheque payable to Helmsley Walled Garden or go to our website and make a donation at https://www.helmsleywalledgarden.org.uk/how-to-help-us/donate-fundraise/ or https://localgiving.org/appeal/HWG/
In the meantime, stay safe, and we will see you when we reopen.
