Squire's garden centres submits rising stars

Two employees from Squire's Garden Centres have been selected to join a Garden Centre Association (GCA) led Rising Stars Programme.

George Bishop, assistant manager at Woking and Charlotte Prentice, garden furniture department head at Long Ditton, will present the results of the programme at the GCA conference in 2014 following their year-long course.

Sponsored by Westland, a Squire’s supplier, the training programme is designed to hone the delegate’s skills and direct them toward being potential leaders of the future.

Squire’s involvement comes weeks after four more of the group's centres across the South East joined the ranks of the GCA.

Following a yearly inspection, Squire’s Reigate, Crawley, Windsor and Cobham (joining eight other Squire’s centres) are now members.
