Roger Head, managing director of Denys E. Head, has confirmed that he is in the process of selling the business, Forest Lodge, Garden Style and Birdworld, to Haskins Garden Centres and is working towards completing the sale over the next few weeks.

Roger Head said: “After setting up the business with my parents 40 years ago, I feel the time is right to retire and therefore sell the business. I have known Warren Haskins throughout this period and believe the Haskins business to be the perfect custodians to continue to develop Forest Lodge, Garden Style and Birdworld.

"I am very proud of the business and the team of people who have contributed so much to our journey and will work hard to make sure the transition is as smooth as possible for the team and our customers.”

Warren Haskins, chairman of Haskins Garden Centres, confirmed: “I am looking forward to Forest Lodge, Garden Style and Birdworld joining our family business. We have developed a great culture within Haskins and work hard to develop a long-term plan for all our sites, with a view of remaining a family owned, independent business.”
