Cherry Tree Nursery has confirmed the cancellation of their plant sale and spring fayre in light of the government instructions to limit social interaction due to coronavirus.
The event, which was due to take place on 21 March 2020, was set to include a variety of stalls, refreshments and a raffle, run largely by the volunteers themselves, as well as live music and a plant sale. A recent statement from the nursery said:
“As I am sure you will appreciate, this decision was not taken lightly as our events are very popular and vital in raising funds for our charity but we must protect all of our customers, supporters, beneficiaries and friends. Our beneficiaries already live with severe and enduring mental illness and we must do all we can to reduce their anxieties so that we all work together through these difficult times.
We are finding great solace in being outside, amongst nature and in the fresh air, which was of course the basis for the charity some thirty years ago.
Our shop and nursery area will be open as usual, 8am to 4pm, Monday to Friday, and 10am to 4pm Saturdays and Sundays.”
