Peter Gibbons appointed Blue Diamond Grosvenor general manager

A former Notcutts manager has taken over running Blue Diamond's Grosvenor garden centre near Chester.

Gibbons spent the last eight years at Notcutts, as general manager of Manchester and Solihull branches and moved to Grosvenor in March 2015.

He is working on sales and profit growth for this season, "which is looking really strong".

He added: "Grosvenor is owned by Blue Diamond and our aim is trade to a higher demographic particularity in this highly affluent area of Chester.

"I am really excited by the challenge ahead and I am looking forward to taking Grosvenor from strength to strength."
