Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Update 12th April 2021

Flower Pod remains open in line with the government’s latest guidance relating to health and social care provision. Extra measures are in place to keep our clients, staff and volunteers well. All activities comply with latest government Covid-19 regulations and are monitored closely. Our senior management team will keep the situation under constant review and our Centre Teams will be in touch with clients and/or carers in case of any change.

In addition to activities at our centres, our innovative and popular alternative service includes online socials and courses, telephone welfare calls, and delivery of activity and wellbeing packs. We are also supporting family carers through online, telephone and face-to-face communication.

Welcome to Flower Pod!

Our unique social enterprise in Southwell, Nottinghamshire offers people with learning disabilities the opportunity to enrich their lives through horticulture. The flowers we cultivate are bought by local people, brightening up homes, businesses and celebrations throughout the community.

Explore our website to buy beautiful locally grown seasonal flowers for any occasion. We pledge to be ‘eco-friendly’, you will not find cellophane or floral foam used in our designs! We prefer to use natural papers, hessian, raffia and up-cycled fabric to tie and wrap in our unmistakable Flower Pod style.

While you are here why not donate to support our work, or even get involved in what we do?

We’d love to hear from you about your first or next visit to Flower Pod, so get in touch any time on 01636 918271 or drop us an e-mail.
