Squire’s Garden Centres has announced the winners of its annual garden centre awards, with its branch in Long Ditton coming out top and winning the double – best Garden Centre and best Café Bar of the year.

Despite tough competition amongst the independent chain’s 15 garden centres, Long Ditton also won top awards for its Christmas department and pets & aquatics department.

The awards were voted for by the senior management team at Squire’s, and are based on results, as well as customer feedback. Anne Deadman, Manager at Squire’s in Long Ditton, received the trophies from Chairman Colin Squire and Deputy Chairman Sarah Squire.

Other notable winners included Theresa Scattergood at Squire’s in Washington, and Emma Large at Squire’s in Badshot Lea, who both won Customer Service Awards for their work in the Garden Centre and Café Bar respectively.

Deputy Chairman Sarah Squire said: “These awards recognise the great effort and achievement made by our garden centres, and by individual employees, throughout the year. A big well done and thank you to everyone for their hard work which is much appreciated.”
