As well as scooping “Garden Centre Of The Year”, Squire’s in Shepperton also won the award for “Catering Excellence”, and “Best Indoor Lifestyle Retailer”. Squire’s in Stanmore were also winners, being given “Best Outdoor Living Retailer” and the Dick Allen Award for “Most Improved Centre”.
Sarah Squire, Chairman at Squire’s commented; “I am delighted that Squire’s in Shepperton took the top spot in the Garden Centre category with Squire’s in Stanmore in second place. Extremely well done to Martin, Ryan and their teams. This is fantastic recognition for all your hard work. These are truly brilliant achievements. The GCA inspections are such a great way for all garden centres to learn from one another and inspires us to improve standards across the board.”
