OFFICIALLY THE BEST!
Barton Grange sweeps the board and wins ‘best in UK’
Barton Grange Garden Centre has won the highly prestigious Garden Centre of the Year Award from the Garden Centre Association.
Less than four years after opening, the Preston-based family-run business has scooped the much coveted award which recognises it as the best destination garden centre in the UK.
The announcement was made at the annual GCA conference in Oxfordshire this week. Barton Grange also won the Ruxley Rose Award for the best plant area in the UK.
And that’s not all: Barton Grange won the award for having the best people, the best indoor living department and the best Farm Shop. They were also joint winners of the catering award and were presented with their award for the Best Christmas Displays.
“It’s quite overwhelming”, said Guy Topping, MD of the company at the awards ceremony. “I am indebted to my wonderful team who all contribute so much to making the Garden Centre what it is. We are all absolutely delighted.”
