We are celebrating at Perrywood this week after scooping the ‘Best Destination Garden Centre’ award at the regional Garden Centre Association (GCA) awards last Thursday. To say that we are delighted is an understatement!

The North Thames region covers East Anglia, London and across to Oxfordshire. All GCA Garden Centres are audited annually and the awards are given out on the basis of these scores. It was a fantastic event for Perrywood – as well as this top regional award, we also won the following:

The Barton Grange Trophy for Innovation and Creativity

As well as these four awards, we also came second for awards in Customer Service and Catering Excellence.

The team at Perrywood work extremely hard every year to improve standards and we are all extremely proud of our successes. We strive to provide our customers with high quality plants, products and food as well as excellent customer service. To receive these awards from our trade association is wonderful!
