The newly rebuilt Squire?s Garden Centre in Chertsey is due to be officially opened in March, along with the reopening of the extended site in Hersham .

The Chertsey branch will open to the public on February 7, while an official event will be held the following month when mayor of Runnymede Alan Alderson will unveil a commemorative plaque.

?A giant 200-year-old olive tree from Spain will be planted to mark the occasion.

The centre in Holloway Hill has been completely rebuilt to include a new outdoor plant area, shop and caf? bar , which is inside an octagon-shaped lodge building that dates back from the Napoleonic wars.

Later in the month, on Friday March 17, the new look Squire?s in Hersham – which will have been opened 33 years ago to the day – will reopen.

The Burwood Road centre has a 20% extension of the shop and cafe bar, a new plant area layout with extended glass canopy, while the cafe bar has been completely refurbished with new furniture, kitchen and a new decked verandah with views over the plant area.

Mayor of Elmbridge Tannia Shipley is due to officially open the centre.

Customers will be able to enjoy a bespoke Gardener?s Afternoon Tea Party on the day and Squire?s will donate a percentage of the ticket price to Greenfingers, a charity that creates magical gardens for children?s hospices.
