There are some important changes taking place here at the Gardens from Monday 18th January.
From that date, we will be closed Monday and Tuesday each week and will be open as usual Wednesday to Sunday (inclusive) for local exercise only. The café remains closed.
We have made this decision following the recent Lockdown, taking into consideration the fact that visitor numbers have fallen considerably and due to the temporary closure of the café. Whilst our intention is to adopt these changes for January and February, this situation will be kept under constant review.
In taking this action we wanted to do everything we could to ensure that the Gardens remained open and we felt that this was the best way of doing this so that local people can still enjoy them during the Lockdown period.
Day Visitors (non-members) must still pre-book to visit the Gardens.
If you don’t have a booking, we won’t be able to let you in.
To book, please go to the link on the homepage of our website www.burnbyhallgardens.com.
For those who cannot access this link, our Customer Service desk can be contacted between 10am and 12pm daily on 01759 307125 to make bookings.
Members do not need to pre-book to visit the Gardens.
LOCKDOWN GUIDELINES – JANUARY 2021
The below is quoted directly from Gov.UK and full details can be found at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/national-lockdown-stay-at-home
“It is against the law to meet socially with family and friends unless they are part of your household or support bubble. You can only leave your home to exercise, and not for the purpose of recreation or leisure (e.g. a picnic or a social meeting). This should be limited to once per day, and you should not travel outside your local area.”
You can exercise in a public outdoor place
- By yourself
- With the people you live with
- With your support bubble (if you are legally permitted to form one)
- In a childcare bubble where providing childcare
- Or, when on your own, with 1 other person from another household
The section on Travel states:
“If you need to travel you should stay local – meaning avoiding travelling outside of your village, town or the part of a city where you live… ”
“outdoor exercise. This should be done locally wherever possible, but you can travel a short distance within your area to do so if necessary (for example, to access an open space)”
PLEASE STICK TO THE RULES AND HELP US TO KEEP THE GARDENS OPEN
