About this event

An opportunity for County Gardens Trust (CGT) members to meet each other online and share their experiences of the Covid-19 pandemic and their plans for the future.

This meeting, and an associated survey, will help us to assess the ongoing and long-term impacts of the pandemic, and to identify what support is needed.

Please note that, as we would like to encourage as many CGTs as possible to attend and for everyone to have an opportunity to join in, we are limiting attendance to CGT Chairs and key personnel.

• Thoughts on the months ahead:

  • dealing with uncertainty whilst restarting events and activities.
  • any long-term concerns about the capacity of your Trust.
