Update about Coronavirus (COVID-19) – 01/06/2020

While some lockdown measures have been relaxed across the UK as of today, the government have published a new Statutory Instrument (SI) which prevents the reopening of many visitor attractions.

After today’s review and updated guidelines, a significant range of outdoor visitor attractions, including farm parks, are still on the list of businesses which must remain closed this month.

The next review should happen towards the end of this month, looking at whether permission to reopen can be given from the 4th of July.

Until that next review and an official go ahead from the government, Vauxhall City Farm will sadly need to remain shut.

We are keeping optimistic and using this extended time to work on ensuring everyone’s safety, for when we finally do get to reopen the farm. Deep cleans are taking place; the community garden volunteer team is scrubbing, painting, oiling, and planting up a storm; and social distancing measures are being installed, ready for (hopefully) July.

However this means another month without visitors, without on site donations, and without income generated through our bookable services.

If you are in a position to do so, please help us by donating to keep the farm going

Stay safe, and take care of each other.
