Covid-19 Update 24 March 2020

Dear Friends,

On this glorious and peaceful spring day at Hellens we are very aware of the incredible upheaval in our world and our thoughts are with all those who are feeling the effects of this terrible situation.

In line with official guidelines on managing the Covid-19 outbreak we have made the following decisions:

  • The House and the Tearoom will not be open for public or private tours until we are advised that it is safe to do so
  • Hellens Garden Festival is postponed initially until 22/23 August
  • Hellensmusic (13 – 17 May 2020) is cancelled
  • All other events are cancelled initially until the end of July
All those who have bought advance tickets for any of these events will be refunded in full. If you are subscribed to the mailing list for Hellensmusic or Hellens Garden Festival you will receive more detailed information soon.
We are lucky to be able to safely enjoy the benefit of this beautiful rural area with lots of open space. We welcome any of you who want to walk in our grounds and gardens, with due consideration.
Please stay in touch through facebook, instagram and our website. We are hopeful that the extra time we have now, due to cancelled events, will be a blessing and an opportunity to do those jobs and projects that we never find the time for from year to year. So please communicate any ideas or thoughts you may have about how we may use this time to improve things at Hellens.  ( 01531 660504)
Thank you so much to all of you for supporting us. Our strong wish is that Hellens will continue, through the challenges we all face now, to play a real part in building a strong and resiliant community.
Adam Munthe (Trust Chairman), Justine Peberdy (General Manager) and the Hellens Team
