Burgess Hill Horticultural Society is concerned about the impact of the Coronavirus COVID-19 on its Members, Speakers, Judges and Visitors at its Events.
The Committee have taken advice regarding the Coronavirus outbreak and feel they have no choice but to call a temporary halt to our activities. They are also mindful that our speakers, judges and visitors may wish to self-isolate themselves. Another factor in the decision to cancel is that, should Government order a ‘lock-down’, the Cyprus Hall would be swiftly closed for all non-essential events/gatherings - therefore it is better to cancel events now than (potentially) at the last minute. Where possible, talks and outings will be postponed and re-scheduled to a suitable future date rather than be cancelled. This is not possible for the Shows.
It has been decided to cancel or postpone the following Events:
Spring Flower and Produce Show - 28th March 2020. Cancelled - See our Virtual Show instead - Click here
