Barton Grange Garden Centre at Brock near Preston has been awarded Destination Garden Centre of the Year Award from the Garden Centre Association (GCA) for 2019!
The award confirms that the family run business based at Brock Preston, located next to The Flower Bowl Entertainment Centre, is the best large garden centre within the UK. The award winners were announced at the annual GCA Conference which was held in Bristol at the Mecure Grand Hotel from Sunday 26th – Tuesday 28th January 2020. At this conference, Barton Grange also picked up their trophy for Best Christmas Displays in the UK, as well as being awarded a plaque to highlight the centre as one of excellence.
The Garden Centre was judged and marked by the GCA in both spring and autumn of last year, with focus on the entrance, department areas, restaurants, customer service, website, staff, product range and quality, sustainability as well as the creativity.
Managing Director of the company, Guy Topping, said: ‘We are so thrilled to bring this award back to Barton Grange! Everyone works extremely hard at the centre and all take pride in what they do. We have a wonderful team and each and every team member does a brilliant job in making the garden centre such a great place to visit but also to work.’
