The annual open day at the Bishop of Norwich’s garden will be going ahead next month and the money raised will go to Friends of Horsey Seals.

The event, in the four-acre 900 year old garden will be on Sunday, July 26, and will be organised a little differently from usual because of the coronavirus restrictions.

Visits will be pre-booked for three one-and-a-half-hour slots – 11am-12.30pm, 1pm -2.30pm and 3pm-4.30pm.

The Bishops Garden will be open in aid of Friends of Horsey Seals.

Admission is £5 per person which will be collected at the gate on the day, either by having the correct money or making a contactless card payment. The plants and honey sales will also use the same system of payment.

Social distancing, a one-way system and hand sanitising requirements will all be observed on the day.

Numbers will be restricted and there will be gaps between sessions for the Bishop’s House team to clean chairs and handrails.

No catering will be provided but visitors are welcome to bring a picnic.

Friends of Horsey Seals are a band of volunteer wardens who help protect the thousands of seals which come ashore along the coast to breed over the winter. They also give advice and information to visitors who come from all over the country to see them.
