"My thanks go to the Mayor of Elmbridge [Councillor Tannia Shipley] for coming to officially open our new and improved garden centre, and to Tim Spearman, who has been the manager here for an amazing 33 years. Tim is a wonderful plantsman, and he runs a centre that sets the highest standards. His knowledge, and his great rapport with customers and the local community have really contributed to the success of the garden centre over the years."
