MorePeople back Garden Retail awards - last chance to enter by 20 July

MorePeople are the latest sponsors of the Garden Retail awards, which has had its entry deadline extended until 20 July.

MorePeople director Guy Moreton said wanting to remain in touch with core clients prompted him to support the awards.

"We didn’t want to lose sight of the core market. In the last 12 months the garden retail sector has been much more buoyant than we expected and we’ve made some big strides with Dobbies, Garden Centre Group and a number of others. The team has been doing a fantastic job. We want to expand all sides of our business across food and agriculture, meat, dairy, poultry and fresh food but we didn’t want to turn our back on the sectors that saw us get where we are. While we’re expanding, we’re not turning our back on our heartland. I don’t want garden centre clients to say they don’t see me anymore because I’m working on meat."

Other sponsors include HTA, Greenfield Software, Town & Country, Sinclair Horticulture, Westland, Mr Fothergills and Quinton Edwards.

The event is on 1 November at Grosvenor House in London.
