A £3 million facelift means Squire’s Garden Centre in Woking is looking blooming marvellous, ready for its grand reopening.
Gardening guru Charlie Dimmock will host the official launch of the new-look garden centre on Saturday 17 March. The green-fingered star, who rose to fame on the BBC’s Ground Force programme and now presents Garden Rescue, will be in Woking for a day of activities, answering garden-related questions and demonstrating planting methods with a Spring Container Workshop.
The Littlewick Road centre has been closed since June for development work, which has created a plant area complete with outdoor canopy, a much bigger shop and extended the Café Bar. The café will have a full waiting service, plus live music from a classical guitarist between 12.30pm-2.30pm every Sunday in March.
The investment sees Squire’s doubling their staff, with 62 now employed versus 30 employees last year.
