Thank You. We have passed the total to make our June opening a certainty and we would love to still be open throughout July.
However, the income raised from the events in the house is unlikely to come back on stream fully until at least September and most of our staff will have to remain on furlough until we earn the income to pay them. With your help we can bring vital staff back to work and ensure a secure and stable future for Stephens House & Gardens, and of course keep the gardens open throughout the summer for you all to enjoy, whatever the controls might be that are in place at that time.
