Update: Covid 19

Spring continues at full force into early summer regardless of Covid 19.

The garden is full of bird song and bursting with life but sadly there are no visitors.

We hope this finds you safe and well. There is no escaping that these are challenging times for everyone and Stone Lane Garden is no exception.

With just one employee Stone Lane Gardens, along with other small charities, sits in a precarious place. We do not have the safety net of teams to mobilise to plan and fund-raise from home.

What we do have, is a small but loyal group of Friends, like you, who support the garden through thick and thin.

It is true to say that we have never needed that support more than now. The Friends’ subs, donations and legacy gifts are the reasons that we are still able to hope and look ahead. This is something special to celebrate in all this uncertainty. With your help, we keep going.

Everyday, despite all the unknowns, we take heart from your support.

This week ‘may’ bring the first signs of ‘lock down’ easing. We have no way of knowing, but sincerely hope that the garden will be part of any ‘first phase’ and begin to be enjoyed by all once again.

This update will bring you news of what’s been happening in the garden behind the closed gates. We hope the next news will be a date to reopen!
