The development, that will lead to two new full-time members of staff being employed is set to start work at the beginning of September.

The Mackenzie and Cruickshank home and garden centre has been nominated for a Scottish Outdoor and Leisure Award in the garden centre category.

Owner Peter Wilson's garden centre, coffee shop and gift department has been at the Greshop Industrial Estate for around 10 years, after relocating from Forres High Street.

Five finalists from the Scottish Outdoor and Leisure Award garden centre category will be shortlisted before being researched and reviewed by a team of independent judges.
