On Friday the 4th December we had a visit from our local MP, David Johnston, he spent an hour with Jeremy walking round the centre and talking about the issues that have affected the business this year, including Brexit and Covid, along with the ever increasing amount of internet shopping and how although we offer the face to face service and knowledge that allows us to challenge this trend better than some high street retailers, it is still having an effect on us. He advised on his support for local businesses and employment for young people and how that linked with him wanting us to be successful. He also praised the layout and the standards of the garden centre, commenting that it was one of the best he’d been to.
