Winnersh Garden Centre partly re-opens after floods
Winnersh Garden Centre, part of the British Garden Centres Group, partly re-opened on Friday after Storm Dennis caused flooding at the centre earlier in the week, the third time the centre has been flooded this year.
The garden centre at Reading was forced to close on Monday when floods affected the whole site with an announcement on Facebook stating the business would be closed until further notice.
The post read: "Sorry to report we have flooded, the whole site including all other businesses will be closed until further notice."
But there was some good news for customers on Friday when the garden centre re-opened its plant area, fencing and landscaping areas. The shop was still closed but the restaurant re-opened on Saturday.
Charles Stubbs told GTN Xtra: "We are all so proud of the team at Winnersh for bouncing back up again so quickly. A huge thank you for all your efforts!"
