A major refurbishment of a Peterborough garden centre has been completed just weeks after the venue was sold.

The Barn by Cherry Lane Garden Centres, in Gunthorpe Road, Paston, has just unveiled its new look, which includes a larger sales area and a 120 seater restaurant.

In addition, the new owners have recruited an extra seven members of staff taking the total number of employees to 22.

The cost of the refurbishment has not been revealed.

The Barn was bought by the Norwich-based QD Group in January and is the 11th garden centre owned by QD Group.

The QD Stores Group includes 24 QD Stores, 11 Cherry Lane Garden Centres, Lathams of Potter Heigham and seven Thing-Me-Bobs.
