Avon Dassett Open Gardens’ in support of National Garden Scheme (NGS) was due to take place on Sunday 5th July. Obviously, under current Government guidelines, opening are not able to take place. NGS is keeping abreast of new guidelines as they are issued and formulating plans for how openings might work once they are able to take place again. However, as the date of Avon Dassett’s opening is only some six weeks, it is hard to imagine how an opening might operate in any way close to ’normal’ or that it would be sensible to bring a potentially large number of visitors into the village.
Therefore, the garden owners have made the decision that they will not open on 5th July, even if it is allowable to do so. As things change over the course of the year, the garden owners will keep in touch with NGS with a view to seeing if there are other ways that they can support NGS in the valuable work they do.
