Wyevale sell Findon to existing manager and announce closure of Rayleigh
Only 26 centres still to be sold now

Wyevale Garden Centres have this afternoon (Wednesday 7th August) announced the sale of Findon Garden Centre in Worthing, to Findon Garden Centre Ltd, a new company set up by the current Wyevale Garden Centre Manager, Dylan Penhaligan (right), and his partner, Chrissie Chaplin.


The sale is expected to complete by mid-September and the site will continue to operate as a garden centre.


Anthony Jones, COO of Wyevale Garden Centres, said: “I am delighted to see Findon Garden Centre continue operating under management who have such an in-depth knowledge of the site. Dylan and Chrissie’s commitment to this centre has been clear throughout the sale process and I am confident we leave Findon in good hands. I would like to thank all of our colleagues at Findon Garden Centre for their skills and hard work and wish them the very best under new ownership.”


Dylan Penhaligan and Chrissie Chaplin, Directors of FGCL said: “Findon Garden Centre is now a local, independent, family run garden centre. We have years of experience in horticulture retail, including, in Dylan’s case, two years managing Findon Garden Centre, and are both looking forward to working with our colleagues and greeting our customers.”


Wyevale Garden Centres have also announced the closure of a leasehold centre, Rayleigh Garden Centre in Essex. The centre is expected to close by the end of September, following confirmation from the Landlord that a new lease will not be granted to potential new operators.


Anthony Jones, COO of Wyevale Garden Centres, said: “Our ambition has always been to find a positive outcome for all centres but I am disappointed to announce that Rayleigh Garden Centre will close by the end of September, shortly before the lease expires. I would like to thank all colleagues at this centre and wish them the very best for the future.”


Following the completion of this and other previously announced sales, Wyevale Garden Centres will trade 26 garden centres plus 6 centres trading under license. The 26 still to be sold as completion of the "Sale of the Century" of all 145 Wyevale Garden Centres that started in June 2018 are:
