With much regret, Herefordshire Growing Point has decided to cancel all horticultural therapy sessions at its Holme Lacy base and in outreach venues around the county until further notice. We know this will come as a great disappointment to our clients, and their families and carers. However, we believe it is the safest action to take now given the seriousness of the coronavirus pandemic and recent government advice.
Our loyal staff and volunteers will continue to look after the demonstration garden at Holme Lacy, and tutors are busy planning activities for when we are able to restart therapy sessions. We will be keeping everyone updated regularly – please look out for news and information on this website and posts on our Facebook page.
