Updated Monday 26th July 2021
Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have had to close our gates early today, Monday 26th July. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Lindengate is at its best at this time of year and with the government guidelines easing, now is the time to get together with friends, family or colleagues and come and see for yourself at our five acre site in Wendover.
Our staff and team of volunteers have been busy maintaining the site and we are now seeing an abundance of produce from our kitchen gardens, as well as incredible wildflowers and broods of ducklings, who are thriving.
With the Government restrictions now relaxed and in light of our experience over the past 16 months, we have decided that we will not be changing the current Lindengate guidelines, to ensure the safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors can be maintained. This is to give us the best chance of remaining open now and into the Winter months.
With many businesses working towards bringing their teams back together again, after over a year of working virtually, now is the time to reconnect. At Lindengate, we believe the natural environment contributes to building resilience and improving wellbeing, so why not arrange your next team meeting at Lindengate? Bring refreshments or a picnic and take time to re-engage, surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature. We also welcome local community groups. Get in touch to book ahead, if coming with a larger group. firstname.lastname@example.org.
For details of all our programmes, please take a look below and at our Programmes page for further details. We would value any support that you may be able to offer – find out how you can support us HERE.
For anyone that is unable to visit, take a look at Lindengate@Home, where you will find many activities that can help you keep active, learn new things, connect with and help others and become more aware of all the good things around you.
If you are unsure what the current guidelines may mean for you, take a look at the Government Guidelines and our FAQ’s below, but if you have further questions, please contact us.
If you are unsure what the new guidelines may mean for you, take a look at the Government guidelines and our FAQ’s below, but if you have further questions, please contact us.
Our Rest & Reflect programme is a FREE drop-in, open to all, where you will be asked to complete a Track & Trace form, as well as use hand sanitiser, before entering. Face masks and gloves are available, but are not compuslary to wear, as the gardens are all outside and offer plenty of sheltered areas to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet.
Please note that there are no toilet facilities available on site during our Rest & Reflect sessions.
Your health and safety are our top priority so, as you’d expect, we’ve introduced a few changes.
Here’s our commitment to you:
We’re following the Covid-19 government safety advice for all visitors and staff to achieve the highest standards. We assess guidelines daily.
We have new operating procedures, cleaning schedules and one-way systems to help manage social distancing.
Regular Risk Assessments have been carried out across Lindengate. As well as clear guidelines and signage on changes to the use of communal areas, extra cleaning and hygiene procedures are being carried out.
Keep those hands clean and please adhere to all Lindengate’s COVID guidelines whilst on site.
It’s up to you help keep us safe too:
Please ensure that, in line with updated Government guidance, if you feel at all unwell, are showing signs of COVID-19 symptoms, are currently shielding, or self-isolating, that you stay at home.
We do not require visitors to Rest & Reflect to wear face coverings at Lindengate, as all areas are outdoor spaces, in line with Government Guidance.
Welcome to Lindengate Charity
Lindengate is located at a stunning five-acre site in Buckinghamshire, where nature breathes new life into anyone looking for support with their wellbeing through nature. The natural beauty and richness of the site help to restore and heal, whilst specialised gardening, conservation, construction, cooking, and nature based art and crafts activities provide focus and purpose. Add to this the community of volunteers and staff who nurture a supportive, inclusive and safe environment and you have a recipe for success.
We are currently working towards having all our services up and running and adding new services, but as we continue to meet Government guidelines to keep everyone safe, we will only be able to open for anyone who needs additional support when we have the resources and capacity to do so safely. Please take a look at our programmes to see what support we are currently able to offer.
