Welcome to the website of the Arundel and Elgin Communal Gardens
The aim of the website is to help you get more out of the Gardens, to keep you up to date with what’s going on and to help more people participate in various garden activities throughout the year.
Covid-19 Update for Arundel & Elgin Garden Residents
NO GUESTS: In light of the recent Government orders to ‘Stay at Home’ to stop Coronavirus (COVID-19) spreading, we must ask residents to NOT invite guests into the Arundel/Elgin Communal Gardens until further notice.
SOCIAL DISTANCING: Government guidelines state that people should minimise the amount of time spent out of their homes and should keep two metres (6ft) away from people they do not live with. There should be NO children playdates, group games, picnics, parties, etc. Any gatherings of more than 2 people (except for families) violates Government policies for Social Distancing. Also please remember bicycles are not allowed in the garden.
PROTECTING OUR VULNERABLE RESIDENTS: We have several residents who are elderly or identified vulnerable people. These residents need to access the communal garden as well. Please be aware of the Government recommended policy of only going outside once a day for no more than 1 hour. Parents should be mindful of how often their children are in the garden.

Residents of Arundel and Elgin Communal Gardens are joining together as volunteers to help the elderly and those with underlying conditions who are quarantined by providing essential help.
