For customers who find January and February can be lonely months, Squire’s Garden Centres have ‘Chatter & Natter’ tables in all of their Café Bars.
Part of the Chatty Café scheme, the tables are for anyone to use every Tuesday morning plus other days throughout the week.
Sarah Squire, chairman of Squire’s, said: “In this age of social media it’s so important to make an effort to talk to others face to face. So for those who would like a bit of real social interaction simply sit at a ‘Chatter & Natter’ table at Squire’s and you can talk to other customers. I believe a short conversation with another human can really brighten your day. Everyone’s welcome, and it’s a great way to meet people in your local community.”
