Fulham Palace Garden Centre looks for new owner

The Prince's Trust is seeking to divest its garden centre in Fulham, west London.

The Trust recently bought two-thirds of the lease for Fulham Palace Garden Centre from Hammersmith and Fulham council for more than £500,000.

The charity took over previous owners Fairbridge Trust in 2011 but says because its "main focus is supporting disadvantaged young people into jobs" it is "looking at all options for the future of the garden centre", which it sees as non-core in its operations.

The centre originally helped the disadvantaged back to work but more recently has been used a fundraiser for its owners.

No agent has been appointed yet, although some have been approached, according to the Prince's Trust.
