Coronavirus update – find out how we’re affected and how we are responding. Updated 05 January 2021

Wellbeing participants

After the Government announcement yesterday, 04 January, we have taken the decision to close all face-to-face wellbeing programmes. We will contact all participants directly and will be providing a variety of virtual group, and individual one-on-one wellbeing sessions, more information will be provided in due course. We will, of course, continue to review the situation and provide further updates.

Plant nursery

Our plant nursery, selling plants, gifts and related sundries will re-open tomorrow 06 January at 09:30am, and we encourage customers to continue to visit us.

We are continuing to follow the extensive safety measures that have been implemented within the plant nursery. We have introduced clear guidelines on maintaining social distancing, and extra cleaning and hygiene regimes will remain in place. We are asking that all customers to the plant nursery please wear a face covering for the duration of your visit.

Dan Angus, Head of Social Enterprise at Mayfield Nurseries says:

“We are incredibly grateful for your support over the past few months. We have introduced extensive measures to keep customers and staff safe at Mayfield Nurseries and will adapt our services to provide specialist support for wellbeing participants virtually. We continue to adhere to Government regulations and remain vigilant. This is a particularly challenging time for us and yet our services have never been more important. If you are able to offer any support to us, please click here."
