Fernhill Covid Guidline Information
Upon the reopening of the Garden Centre on May 18th the health, safety and wellbeing of our customers and team members is our utmost priority. We must do the right thing by the communities we live and work in to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. We have implemented stringent procedures and taken the necessary steps as part of the Government Return to Work Protocol and the latest Public Health Advise. Here are a few updates so you can understand our new way of shopping Fernhill:
We have introduced a new one way system our old entrance is now exit only you cannot enter via old entrance.
You will enter the garden centre through our new building where we will ask you to collect a sanitized trolley and join the queue into plant area.
We will be limiting the numbers in the garden centre to allow safe shopping, please follow signs for the one way system.
Please do not arrive in groups as we will only be allowing 2 people max per household into the centre at any one time, this goes against our family friendly ethos here at Fernhill but for the moment this is what we have to do .
Savoury Fare Restaurant will be open for take away service from Tuesday 19th of May
Our staff is our family, be kind and be patient, as we all get use to the new system of garden retail. Unfortunately we will have to restrict consultations to a minimum and please wear a face mask when approaching a member of staff.
Regrettably our planted container refill service will not be available at this time due to Covid restrictions
For our “vulnerable” and “at risk” customers, we have allocated every Tuesday and Thursday from 9am to 11am as their time to shop with us. If all others can please be aware of this.
Our playground is not open to the public at this time. Hopefully we will get there as other phases get introduced.
We have to limit the number of customers in the store along with our staff, so please bear with us, as we have had to work to create a more spacious, comfortable environment for all.
Note our 2m physical distancing signage and locations of hand sanitizers, our screens and trolleys are sanitized throughout the day. Our toilet facilities are available for customer use, remember hand hygiene etiquette.
Please plan your visit, a list is a great way of getting your gardening requirements we also ask you to limited your browse in store in order to allow next customer in.
THANK YOU FOR TAKING TIME TO READ THIS. THESE ARE STRANGE TIMES. WE ARE DELIGHTED TO BE ABLE TO SERVE YOU AGAIN, IN A SAFE AND INSPIRING ENVIROMENT,
KEEP SAFE, KEEP GARDENING THE FERNHILL TEAM.
