Squires sees success at Garden Centre Association awards

Squire's Centres across the south east have triumphed in this year's Garden Centre Association awards.

The Garden Centre Association judged each region in the UK in categories appropriate to the size of their business.

In the North Thames area Squire’s Stanmore took first place for both the ‘Most Improved Centre’ and ‘Highly Commended Centre overall’ and came second in both Plants and Pets, for the under £4m turnover category.

In the South Thames area Squire’s won many Awards of Merit for all of their centres including Hersham which won first place in the ‘Plant’ category and Shepperton which won first place in the ‘Service’ and ‘Garden Care’ categories.

"We’re delighted to receive these accolades," said deputy chairmam Sarah Squire.

"Being judged so highly, when the standards across the region are so great is an honour. We’re especially pleased for Stanmore to have received such fantastic results as we’ve recently celebrated our first anniversary, having taken over the centre from Shoots last year.

"All the centres have worked hard to maintain high standards across their plant areas and it’s very pleasing to see them rewarded for their continued efforts," Squire added.
