Blackfordby Open Gardens

Statement – Blackfordby Open Gardens 2020

CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK

Following Government advice on the Coronavirus outbreak in the UK, and the timescales given by scientific advisors, we have reluctantly decided that this year’s event due to take place at the end of June will be cancelled.

Insurance companies have also indicated that Coronavirus claims would be excluded and not covered by our public liability insurance.

The committee do not feel that, in the interests of the local community, the Blackfordby Open Gardens event should proceed this year.

We would like to sincerely thank everyone who had offered to open their gardens this year and all the people that offered to help.

But we will be back!

I do hope you will all support us again in 2021 and we are sorry that this cancellation has been necessary.

Brian Hammond
Chairman
Blackfordby Open Gardens
