THE Gardens Group, which has three garden centres in Sherborne, Poundbury and Yeovil, is taking extra steps to help customers during the coronavirus crisis.
The garden centres, and the Brimsmore farm-shop at Yeovil, are following the Covid19 guidelines to assist customers who have been advised to self-isolate or are following social distancing measures so that they can still access necessary provisions without risking their health and wellbeing.
While taking orders for delivery over the phone for the garden centres and farm shop, the team is also making time to check in with customers to ensure that sure they are not distressed or facing practical difficulties due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The Gardens Group will now offer to deliver groceries along with any gardening orders in order to support those more vulnerable members of the community.
Mike Burks, managing director of The Gardens Group and chairman of the Garden Centre Association, says: “During these challenging and uncertain times, we want to emphasise the importance of pulling together and looking out for those more vulnerable, so everyone has the necessary provisions to weather this difficult period. We’ve built a long-standing relationship with the community over many years, so we want to do our bit to enable people to follow the government’s advice with minimal distress and impact.”
The Gardens Group is continuing to monitor the situation with Coronavirus (Covid-19) very closely.
Telephone orders for the garden centres and farm shop can be placed over the phone, and delivery is free within 25 miles.
