Bradford garden centre group wins award

The team at a Bradford-based garden centre group is celebrating after winning a regional business award.

Yorkshire Garden Centres, owner of Tong, Tingley, Bingley and Otley Garden Centres, won the Community category of the Yorkshire Post Excellence in Business Awards that recognise and reward businesses and the vital role they play in Yorkshire’s economic success.

Receiving the award, Yorkshire Garden Centre’s MD, Mark Farnsworth, said: “We are delighted to win this prestigious award that is a testament to the efforts of our hard-working team.  We are particularly pleased to be recognised for our efforts in the community; each of our centres hopes to play an active role in all their communities and it’s very important to us. This award reinforces the value of our community initiatives in each of the areas we serve.

Yorkshire Garden Centre beat stiff competition from Reckitt, Mattress Online, Go Green Ltd and City Cruises York to win the award. They were presented with it at a ceremony in Leeds on 22nd November that was hosted by BBC Look North anchor Amy Garcia and attended by 300 people.
