Our Spring & Easter ranges have arrived
It’s #NationalNextBoxWeek
Meadow Croft Garden Centre held our annual quiz night on Friday and this year’s charity was Muscular Dystrophy.

Two of our casual staff, Leah and Daisy are running the London Marathon in April for this charity which is close to their hearts.

With all the fantastic support from staff, family and friends the girls managed to raise a whopping £2500 on the night, so a HUGE thank you to all.
