Heaton Fold

Heaton Fold Garden Centre, which offers work placements to adults with learning disabilities, has had a major cash boost.

It will get an investment of ?100,000 to further develop the site.

The money will go towards a new building and refurbish the caf? area and gift shop.
This will increase the income stream of Heaton Fold garden centre, according to a report by director of place Gerry Brough.
Adults with learning disabilities undertake a range of work-related tasks at the centre.
The caf? underwent refurbishment in 2014. Three sisters, Jo Burrage, Margaret Porritt and Janet Maguire took over.
Under the new plan, the existing marquee will move to a new location on site to allow for a new modular building.
The hard standing area will provide a dedicated kitchen and caf?.
The transfer of the kitchen and caf? will free up space to expand the gift shop.
The proposed relocation of the kitchen and caf? will allow the garden centre to develop the customer offer in relation to the caf?. It also allows the gift shop to grow. This will increase the income stream in future years relating to both those areas.
Cllr Nick Peel approved the investment at a private meeting on December 3.
