Annual awards highlight team success at Notcutts


The family-owned garden centre group, Notcutts, gathered at the Chesford Grange Hotel in Kenilworth to celebrate the successes of its colleagues across all 19 garden centres nationwide. The event, attended by over 140 colleagues, Notcutt family members and sponsors, marked the culmination of a year of hard work and dedication.


Awards were presented by Caroline Notcutt, Vice-Chairman and great-granddaughter of Notcutts’ founder Roger Crompton Notcutt, alongside Chairman Bridget McIntyre, to celebrate team and individual achievements over the past year.



Award categories recognised Notcutts teams across all areas of the business, including ‘Best Garden Centre Performance’ which was won by Notcutts Maidstone, and 'Best Restaurant', awarded to Notcutts Oxford. New for 2024 was the ‘Pet Excellence’ category, won by Notcutts Ashton Park near Manchester for their outstanding pet department. The awards ceremony also recognised garden centres for their commitment to sustainability through the ‘Environmental Action Award’ won by Notcutts Ashton Park, and the ‘Community Hero Award’ won by Notcutts Brampton near Huntingdon for fostering meaningful connections within their local communities.


Colleagues from each of Notcutts’ 19 garden centres and the support office were recognised with ‘Frontline Hero Awards’ for demonstrating their commitment to Notcutts’ values of Passion, Inspiration and Expertise. Furthermore, the ceremony paid tribute to longstanding commitment, with several colleagues receiving 'Long Service Awards' for 25 or 40-year milestones in their careers. Colin Dale, Category Head of Plants and Gardening at Notcutts and Stephen Lonergan, Operations Manager from Notcutts Maidstone were amongst those proudly presented with ‘Long Service Awards’ for 40 years of dedication and expertise. 



Nick Burrows, Chief Executive at Notcutts Garden Centres, said: “Each year our conference and awards shine a light on the fantastic work that our incredible teams do on the ground, every day, at our garden centres across the country and in our support office. It’s always an inspiring occasion and I’d like to extend a huge congratulations to all our winners and thank you to our sponsors for supporting the event.”


The Notcutts annual awards and conference was sponsored by key suppliers: Birketts, Brakes, Catit, Char-Broil, Darlac, Esprit UK, Evergreen Garden Care, Far Logistics, Hozelock, Kettler, Leisuregrow, Mr Fothergill’s, Pelican Procurement Services, Smart Garden Products, TNP and Westland.
