We are pleased to be Sun Protection Accredited through the Melanoma Fund. Their campaign 'Watch Your back!' is for gardeners and horticulturists to ensure that everyone in the industry is aware of the importance of sun protection in the fight against skin cancer.
Our plant team, head gardener, volunteers and outside café team are working in the sun, it is important to us to ensure that they are protected. Awareness is raised at team meetings and sun cream is available to those who need it.
Remember when you are out in your garden to wear sun cream, suitable clothing and drink plenty of water. Even if it is cloudy as they UV rays will penetrate through the clouds.
Sun protection is recommended between March and October and try to avoid the sun when it is at its strongest between 11am and 3pm.
