Salle Farms near Reepham has received confirmation that it will be allowed to open as planned on Saturday 28 November, during the current lockdown restrictions, to sell trees for the festive season.
The Salle Estate has 34 hectares of land used solely for growing Christmas trees and supplies thousands of trees to garden centres and farm shops across Norfolk, as well as such venues as Norwich Cathedral, Norwich Castle and many villages and towns, including those to be installed in Reepham Market Place.
Tom Barwick, Salle Farms Christmas tree manager, said: “All the talk on Twitter and other social media platforms suggests that people are looking to get their tree earlier than normal, so we were keen to be allowed to open as planned.
“Some great lobbying during Prime Minister’s Questions from another Christmas tree grower and their local Leicestershire South MP [Alberto Costa] helped allow us to open.” See Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s reply HERE
The Salle Farms Christmas shop on the B1145 will be open 9 am – 5 pm from 28 November – 23 December and 9 am – 12 noon on 24 December. All required Covid-19 safety measures have been put in place.
