The arrival of the Covid virus into the UK has meant that at the end of March 2020 the government put the country into lock down. people were instructed to “Stay at Home” unless they were vital workers. The council closed the car parks at the Three Sisters. The Friends were not allowed to work on the site for many months.

When the restrictions started to be lifted we returned to the Wildlife Garden and worked there, making sure we were socially distanced. The plants and the weeds had grown in our absence so we had lots of tidying up to do. However the garden was very green and many people had used it during their hour of time out of their house during lock down.
