COVID-19 Update – 22nd September 2020
Further to today’s Government Announcement, as ever, we are responding with zero notice to another huge change to Weddings Guidelines – please understand we cannot have all the answers immediately or deal with everyone’s queries all at once. We would be very grateful for your patience and we will get back to everyone as quickly as we can.
For any Couples wishing to proceed with a small ceremony and reception, we will have options available, and will update our packages for 30 as soon as we have had sight of the new Guidelines. The package, when we could host 30, you can see on our Special Offer Page. We would be more than happy to talk you through the details of how ceremonies and receptions could work at South Farm once things become clearer in the coming week. So please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you and help plan your wedding!
To help sustain us through this period and make use of the abundance of fruit and vegetables currently growing in our smallholding we are delighted to be hosting Pop-Up Restaurant Events for anyone who would like to come and spend an evening with us at South Farm! We hope the opportunity to come and eat some amazing home-grown South Farm food might brighten these difficult times! A big thank you to all those who attended our Pop Up Evenings in August and September. We hope to hold our next Pop Up Evening in October and will release more details very soon!
Showrounds are now being conducted on a restricted and ‘Covid-safe’ basis. If you would like to visit an experienced member of our team would love to show you round and prepare an estimate based on your ideas. The showround will be socially distanced (we have plenty of space!) and handwashing facilities /sanitising will be available for all our visitors on arrival, doors will remain open and hand sanitising stations will be present in all of our indoor spaces, gloves and masks for those that wish!. Visits to South Farm will be available for prospective couples only (maximum two people and sorry no children allowed either at the moment) and are bookable by appointment only. Please contact the office on 01223 207581 between 9am and 4pm or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book an appointment. Autopilot visits are welcome too but currently only during the week (preferably Wednesdays) and not weekends as we need to manage numbers on site at any one time.
We have re-opened our 2021 calendar for all dates up to the end of September 2021 and we have some fantastic Spring and Summer 2021 dates now available!! Thursday 8th April 2021, Bank Holiday Monday 31st May, Sunday 4th July 2021 and Thursday 19th August 2021!! We apologise to our new couples, but our 2021 calendar remains temporarily closed to new bookings between October and December at the moment, to preserve those dates for our existing couples in case we need to continue postponing this year’s weddings. We will provide an update on this as soon as we can.
We will post updates when we have them and look forward to the time when we can get back to what we do best but, until then, stay safe. South Farm
