The British Garden Centre Group has announced a partnership with local Lincolnshire based travel agency Holiday’s By Design. The travel agency will be opening its second store this July inside one of the UK’s largest garden centres and the flagship centre of the group, Brigg Garden Centre, which is based in North Lincolnshire.

Holidays By Design is a small Cleethorpes based travel agency offering bespoke holidays around the globe. Hayley Markham, Holidays By Design Brigg manager, said: “The Holidays By Design team and I are thrilled to be opening our second store and in such a wonderful location. This past year has been difficult for everyone, and we are excited by the prospects of returning to travel and creating bespoke holidays for our customers.”

The British Garden Centres Group says it is proud to support this local business and an industry which is struggling in the current climate. The travel industry has been massively affected during the pandemic and there are still many travel restrictions in place both in the UK and around the world. On 23 June 2021, travel restrictions were protested in London and the Holidays By Design team was there supporting the cause.

“We are all really excited to welcome the Holidays by Design team to Brigg Garden Centre,” said centre manager, Robin Bosworth. “hey have had tremendous success and we are looking forward to seeing their business ‘take off’ at Brigg. They will be a great addition and, I’m sure, loved by all.”
