Perennial prepares for increase in demand

4237911144?profile=RESIZE_710xPerennial is the safety net for people in the horticulture industry and is here to help anyone working in, or retired from any job involving trees, plants, flowers or grass.

As the effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continue to evolve for the horticulture industry, Perennial is urging anyone who is worried or has questions about how it will affect them, or their family, to get in touch.

The team’s clear message is ‘we’re in this together’ and wants everyone in the industry to know they are here to support you. Perennial’s helpline is operating as usual on 0800 093 8543 or visit www.perennial.org.uk for the latest updates.

Julia Hayne, director of services at Perennial, said: “We know people are worried; it’s only natural to be concerned about your own health, your ability to continue working and to support your family. We’re here to reassure, advise and help you through the coming weeks and months. We all need to work together on this.

"We are all facing unprecedented challenges as we adjust to new ways of working and Perennial is determined to remain available and active for everyone we help.”

Perennial has a range of support services online and its advisers are available by phone, email or video call free of charge and in complete confidence.

"Thank s Mark for your responses. I am getting my faithful Allen Turf Doctor repaired with new bearings as they were shot and probably keep it for larger lawns and for tougher jobs. I am thinking the Eliet will be more than good enough for my needs."
