Squire’s given ‘Best Garden Centre’ accolade by The Express

Published: 31 October 2017 - Sue Deane

Squire’s Garden Centres have been awarded the title ‘Best Garden Centre’ at the Express Home and Living Awards 2017.

A star-studded ceremony was held last Thursday, 26 October in London’s West End, where the biggest and brightest names in homes and gardens were celebrated. Daily Express owner Richard Desmond was on the judging panel along with BBC One presenters Martin Roberts of Homes Under The Hammer and Gabrielle Blackman of DIY SOS. Mark Dolan, comedian, writer and star of Channel 4’s Balls of Steel, kept the glitzy audience amused as master of ceremonies.

Squire’s group marketing manager Karen Smith commented: “We are absolutely delighted to have won the award for Best Garden Centre. I was honoured to pick this award up on behalf of the whole team who always work hard and provide excellent customer service. We are so proud of all our centres and were up against some tough competition which makes this win even more special.”
