Message from Will, 4th November 2020

I hope you are all well during this Rollercoaster ride of 2020! We are extremely grateful and pleased to see garden centres under the ‘essential’ umbrella going into tomorrow’s lockdown which will mean we shall continue to be open throughout this period to play our part in the local community and help to provide Plants, colour, composts, food and much more to help everyone get through this next period of lockdown as and when needed.

Your amazing support through the last lockdown and throughout this year has at times left the family and all the staff speechless and extremely proud. I would like to thank you all for the part you have played in helping us through this, and in turn I hope we continue to offer hope, help and an escape through the beauty of plants in these difficult times for us all.

We of course will continue to closely follow the government guidelines to protect staff and customers whilst continuing to offer the best shopping experience possible with that bumbles personable touch.

For those who during this lockdown would like to keep contact to a minimum we are happy to take orders over the phone and organise a click and collect time slot for you starting from tomorrow so please feel free to call us on 01580 720940 for any requirements.

For others we look forward to continuing to see you in store over the coming month.

Once again I’d like to thank you all and thank all the bumbles staff who myself and Dad are very grateful for and have been amazing this year.
