Cambridgeshire Gardens Trust

Welcome to CGT

Why not explore our series of Zoom talks?

Tune in to a Swedish PhD defence – 18 September 2020

The University of Gothenburg is examining a PhD on Management Regimes for Lawns and Hedges in Historic Gardens by Joakim Seiler, who is Head Gardener at Gunnebo House. The topic ties in nicely with the current interest in lawns and meadows. Joakim recently gave a fascinating seminar to the Gardens Trust, so this is another opportunity to hear his work. PhD defences are public events at continental universities and this one is happening online, in English from 12:00-14:00BST on Friday 18 September 2020. The Zoom joining details will be published on Thursday here.

CGT and Covid-19

The Cambridgeshire Gardens Trust Council of Management is deeply concerned by the continuing presence of the corona virus in the UK and offers its heartfelt sympathy to anyone directly or indirectly affected by Covid-19.

CGT is committed to complying with the policy announcements of the UK Government and Public Health England as published and updated from time to time at these links and through national media. In view of the most recent guidance as of 4 July 2020, we are continuing to review each event with a view to cancellation or suspension. Details of the situation for each event can be found on the Programme webpage. The Trust continues to monitor the situation and we will update this policy in light of changing guidance. CGT members and guests are invited to review government and PHE advice and to consider whether participation in a given event is appropriate for them. 

Should an event be cancelled either by the host organisation or by CGT as a result of official advice, we will refund all pre-paid bookings
