“Across all four centres we would like to thank our great colleagues who have been central to our turnaround.
“In the case of Windsor, we will continue to operate as a Wyevale Garden Centre with no immediate impact.
?For those centres sold to garden centre operators, we would like to wish our colleagues well under new ownership.

We will seek to redeploy our excellent colleagues to our other garden centres wherever possible?.

“The sale of these centres reflects our continued pursuit of positive outcomes for our colleagues and customers.
“We are very grateful for the dedication and commitment of the teams at these centres, and we?ll continue to support them through the transition.?
