A THATCHAM garden centre is to be given a new lease of life.
British Garden Centres (BGC) has acquired the former Wyevale centre, taking the group to 58 centres, and is recruiting ahead of a possible opening next month.
The Wyevale centre in Thatcham closed a year ago and the freehold and leasehold were surrendered to the landlord. BGC has taken a new long lease.
Joint managing director Charles Stubbs said: "I’m delighted we’ve been able to bring Thatcham in to the BGC family. I’m excited by the prospect of re-opening the garden centre and we are going to pull out all the stops and open in October with our full offer, including Christmas.”
“We know that this has been a superb garden centre in the past, and we look forward to providing the good people of Thatcham, Newbury and beyond with a first-class garden centre. Over the next few weeks we will be recruiting a large number of people for both the garden centre and restaurant and I’m looking forward to meeting them all.”
