New cafe and digital sales platform on cards for Lichfield garden centre following purchase

Plant Plot Garden Centre in Lichfield, Staffordshire has changed hands following a funding deal by Yorkshire Bank.

David Rusholme, who bought the centre, says he plans to construct a new café bistro and create a digital sales platform.

"This funding from Yorkshire Bank has helped me make a life-changing purchase - I am excited to grow the business over the coming years through a new café facility and expansion of the centre," said Rusholme.

James Oliver from Yorkshire Bank's Birmingham Customer Banking Centre added: "David has a wealth of business experience and we’re thrilled to be able to help him with his purchase of the garden centre.

"The new modernised centre will be a fantastic facility for the local community and we’d like to wish David every success with this new venture."
