Squire's

Squires Garden Centres are celebrating after being awarded the title of ?Best Garden Centre? at the Express Home and Living Awards 2017.

Squires, an independent family-owned business with 15 garden centres across the South East, fought off strong competition to take home the prestigious award.

A star-studded ceremony was held last Thursday 26th October in London?s West End, where the biggest and brightest names in homes and gardens were celebrated. Daily Express owner Richard Desmond championed the awards as a tribute to businesses that turn our houses and flats into happy living spaces. The judging panel included Mr. Desmond, as well as BBC One presenters Martin Roberts of Homes Under The Hammer, and Gabrielle Blackman of DIY SOS. Mark Dolan, comedian, writer and star of Channel 4?s Balls of Steel, kept the glitzy audience amused as master of ceremonies.

Karen Smith, Group Marketing Manager at Squires commented, ?We are absolutely delighted to have won the award for Best Garden Centre! I was honoured to pick this award up on behalf of the whole team at Squires, who always work so hard and provide excellent customer service. We are so proud of all our centres, and we were up against some tough competition, which makes this win even more special.?
