The GCA represents the leading garden centres both in the UK and worldwide as part of its membership of the International Garden Centre Association (IGCA). It asks garden centre members to meet the highest retail standards and participate in an annual inspection process to ensure these standards are maintained and improved.

Iwan Gwyn, Manager of Flintshire garden centre said: “We are delighted that Woodworks yet again received Merit Awards and posted a higher score compared to last year’s audit!

“Given it is an unannounced visit and was conducted very early in the season when we are continuing to make improvements and stock up, it is a credit to the whole team that their hard work ensured not only a pass but an improvement on 2022. Being a damp and dreary day didn’t help but we can’t control the weather.

“I’d like to say a massive well done to everyone at Woodworks. Every single one of our employees has played a part in our success, whether they were there or not on the day of the audit.”

The Woodworks Garden Centre, which was established in 2005, is part of the P&A Group, and features an award-winning café.
