The Woodworks Garden Centre has received two Merit Awards following an unannounced audit by the industry body the Garden Centre Association.

In addition to a Merit Award for Garden Construction for the third year in a row, and a merit for its customer service. The Woodworks also received a higher score for the audit than the previous two years, demonstrating the Garden Centre’s continued commitment to making improvements across the board.

The GCA, formed in 1966, 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.

Commenting on the audit and Merit Awards, Iwan Gwyn, Manager of The Woodworks 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!”

The Woodworks Garden Centre, which was established in 2005, is part of the P&A Group and is situated in the heart of the North Wales borderlands. Featuring an award-winning Café which serves breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea, Woodworks offers excellent value for money on a range of quality products and categories, including indoor and outdoor plants, giftware, garden furniture, hard landscaping and much more.

Concludes Iwan: “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. We strive to ensure The Woodworks is a destination Garden Centre and our customer service is second to none.”
