Stanton Nurseries has thanked customers for the respectful way they had reacted to new safety measures it has introduced due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The centre closed in March as lockdown began and reopened in May, and now has a range of changes in place to how it operates. It did offer a delivery service while the garden centre was closed..

These changes now include signage and walkways along with directional arrows for customers to follow.

There is also a table at the entrance stocked with disposable gloves. Baskets and trollies are sanitised ready for customers to use.

Bosses at Stanton Nurseries said: “We just wanted to say a huge thank you to all of our customers. Your support during these incredibly challenging times has been nothing short of phenomenal. We really do appreciate it.

“Not only do we appreciate the support and wonderful feedback during the time we carried out non-contact deliveries, we appreciate how respectful and considered everyone has been that visited the centre since it reopened to the public on Wednesday, May 13.

“Your health is so important to us and we will continue to maintain the measures we have put in place to be open and be safe.

“We understand there are still people who are shielding therefore are unable to leave their homes which is incredibly difficult – we are thinking of you.”

A spokesman for the centre said as it has a small team it was unable to offer its delivery service now it has reopened, but if anyone was in dire need it might be able to help. He urged people to call the centre to speak with staff.

They said: “Please stay safe. It’s by no means over but it’s a start to recovery in every sense of the word.

“The baby steps are crucial – too much, too soon will undo all the sacrifices everyone has made and are making.

“We can do this as a community, the resilience we have witnessed is incredible. Lets keep it up.”
