Johnsons of Boston Food Hall open today despite major fire in garden centre yesterday

Despite a major fire at Johnsons of Boston garden centre yesterday it is business as usual for essential food shopping.


Emergency services were called to Johnson's Garden Centre on the A52 Wainfleet Road near Boston on Sunday morning after a blaze broke out at the back of the property.

Aerial footage of the blaze was captured by Lincolnshire Police Drones and can bee seen on the BBC News website using this link:


The garden centre has re-assured customers via their Facebook page that: "although the fire was serious, it has not affected or damaged the food hall, or the Garden Centre stock. Of course the Garden Centre and restaurant remain closed due to the measures in place to fight Corvid-19, but the plants are being looked after and the rest of the stock is intact.


"Thank you for your hundreds of kind messages. If you want to help, stay at home and stay safe unless coming out for essential supplies for you or your pets. When you need food, shop local whenever you can... we are here for you as always."


No-one was injured and staff at the pet shop based at the centre managed to get all of the animals out unharmed.
