An Update on Workshops & COVID-19
If you follow Origin Flowers on Instagram, you will know that I have been working for months planting thousands of flowers in anticipation of our Mothers Day workshops, which are always wonderful events – but with the rapidly changing advice about Covid-19, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel the workshops.
Although we can’t have you all come to Origin to create your own flower posy due to the Covid-19 virus, we can ensure that the beautiful flowers we have grown in our fields still get to you. So, I will be creating unique posies for each of you and delivering them to whatever address you would like them to go to.
I know many of you will be disappointed by the cancellation, but I hope you understand our desire to put your safety first. We have held off making a decision as long as possible to get the latest advice, but based on what we have heard today, we feel this is the most responsible option to enable each of us to enact social distancing.
Thank you for the messages of support we’ve received over the last week – there are many small businesses like Origin Flowers which will be massively affected by this virus. I deeply appreciate your support. It’s been very emotional as I have considered the impact this will have on workshops, weddings and other events at Origin Flowers. An incredible amount of work goes into growing the flowers locally at Origin, along with the investment of many thousands of plants, so cancelling the workshops is a deeply sad decision for us to make. It means the world to have such wonderful customers supporting us throughout the year, and I hope you will keep spreading the word about the local, seasonal, wild & romantic flower creations which are available from Origin Flowers.
I know how much everyone loves getting to create their own posy with the freshly harvested flowers, but with the unprecedented challenge we all face to protect one another from the risks of this virus spreading, we hope you will love your posy which I will create and deliver to you on Saturday 21st. The value of the beautiful posy delivered to your door will be the same as the ticket price for the workshop.
Although we don’t know the impact Covid-19 virus will have on workshops over the summer if you would prefer us to move your booking to another date, please use the form below to message us, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will attempt to accommodate your request.
