Blackbrooks celebrate record year

by | Dec 20, 2016 | News | 0 comments

Staff at Blackbrooks Garden Centre rounded off the year with a celebration party held at Leeford Place Hotel, Battle on 13th December in recognition of their outstanding achievements in 2016.

In welcoming everyone to the evening, managing director, Mark Winchester acknowledged the contribution of every member of staff in achieving significant growth in all departments. The team were in high spirits because of the excellent response from their customers to the Garden Centre?s Christmas marketing activity. Santa?s Grotto is fully booked right up to Christmas Eve and the Snow Globe has received huge coverage on Facebook.

Blackbrooks has seen enormous change and investment over recent years. The covered sales area for plants and growing media has been extended providing a comfortable shopping environment all year round. A new 150 seater restaurant has been opened and the indoor sales area has been totally re-furbished with thoughtfully designed display areas echoing the core values of Blackbrooks heritage.

The centre is a member of the Garden Centre Association and also a member of Choice Marketing Ltd of which Mark Winchester is the current Chairman. Located on the busy A21 north of Hastings, the Centre is well positioned to service large areas of East Sussex and West Kent.
