Garden centres celebrate anniversaries

Squire's and Kershaw's hold anniversary events.

Squire's Hersham in Surrey is celebrating its 30th anniversary on 6 September with garden games, a bouncy castle, a chance to meet the growers, face painters, a BBQ, jazz band and more. 

Meanwhile, Brighouse, West Yorkshire-based Kershaw's Garden Centre has raised money for  Overgate Hospice, Elland after celebrating turning 150. The centre was established in 1864 as a nursery and seedsman.

Special offers include £18.64 and £150 items. Club 1864, where members will receive special offers and a regular newsletter, has also launched.

Kershaw’s was bought by Samuel Yates in 1928 and has since passed through four generations of the Yates family.

Now the main emphasis is on the garden centre and related shops on site, which as well as a café now include a gents hairdresser, accessories, ladies gym, craft centre, ironing service, traditional sweet shop, cycle repair, home brew centre, school uniforms and bespoke pine furniture workshop.

Perrywood recently celebarted its 30th anniversay of Alan and Karin Bourne taking over with a 150-person party, 30 per cent off offers and an opportunity for staff and customers to upload memories on its website.
