Magazine subscription

I was given a years subscription for gardeners world magazine, will it still be coming out each month now? I didn't get around to activate it and now the office has closed down ( w h Smith )
There is a bar code on the envelope and a number which you can do on line but is it worth it now

    I've flagged your post up to the Mods ... hopefully they can advise you.

    That's an interesting question @Don my Ton . I've been a regular subscriber for years and had just received my April copy. No idea though if I will get next month's. I presume it might depend on how many people get ill.

    Hello Don my Ton,

    Thanks for your query. Here's an update from my colleagues on the magazine:

    "Please rest assured that we'll be continuing to publish Gardeners' World Magazine monthly, as usual and we're very much committed to bringing you excellent service through these challenging times.

    We're currently working really hard to finish off the May issue, which will be packed with  great content. As ever, it's a big collective effort - this is a bracing challenge at the moment as the team is dispersed across several cities and counties, working remotely. But, with the help of technology and lots of tea we're getting there. And it's the first time many of us have had the pleasure of sitting in our own gardens on a work day, so there's always an upside!

    We're working closely with our postal partners to ensure that our subscribers continue to have their monthly copies delivered directly to their homes in a timely manner. We're also inviting our subscribers to sign up to email alerts so that if there are any disruptions or concerns we can let them know as quickly as possible. In addition, our subscribers have access to extra online content (through Secret Garden) that is updated regularly."
