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 UK Health Security Agency as published and updated from time to time at these links and through national media. In view of the most recent guidance as of 27 April 2022, we can now offer a mixture of live and on-line events. 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 UKHSA 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


Cambridgeshire Gardens Trust is a registered charity whose aim is to encourage and develop research, education and conservation projects for heritage landscapes in Cambridgeshire. We organise a full programme of activities for members, including garden visits, lectures and social events. These give everyone the opportunity to meet and to network with a diverse and interesting group, and to create lasting benefit for communities in our county and beyond.

We warmly welcome new members and visitors to this website and to Trust events organised throughout the year.
