• Workshops on present wrapping, tree decorating and preparing the Christmas table
25 November 2011, Syon Park London: There is a perfect gift for everyone this Christmas season at The Garden Centre Group’s 130 centres. Presents for the whole family, friends and even family pets can be found.
Uniquely poised to offer customers a stress-free shopping experience, the centres are stocked with trees, plants, stocking fillers and foodie treats. Cards, ribbon, wrapping paper and everything needed to decorate a home will complete the range, offering everything needed for a traditional British Christmas under one roof.
Kathryn Best, Marketing and PR Manager for The Garden Centre Group, said, “Our goal is to make Christmas a relaxing, enjoyable and stress-free experience. When you visit one of our centres, you’ll be able to select something for everyone on your list in addition to picking out your tree and everything to decorate your home. We’ll even have workshops on present wrapping, preparing the Christmas table and advice on tree selection and care to help make sure everyone is prepared for the festive season.”
