Generous Garden Centres Add Extra Colour To Bishop’s Cleeve

5 May 2021

Bishops Cleeve Gardening Week

Delighted Colleagues at Bishop’s Cleeve Care Home picked up some colourful garden gifts from two local businesses in celebration of National Gardening Week.

Nearby garden centres, Webbs in Cheltenham and The Fairview Gardener in Birdwood, kindly donated the plants to help make the Bishop’s Cleeve site look even more spectacular.

Bishop’s Cleeve Customer Relations Manager Tommy Fellows said it was wonderful the garden centres were going out of their way to support the new home where the plants will be enjoyed by everyone.

A spokesperson for Webbs, Evesham Road, said: “We are delighted to put together a beautiful collection of plants for the incoming Residents at Bishop’s Cleeve. There are so many benefits to gardening, whether it is just sitting out in the sun, or doing a bit of gentle planting, it can be a quiet or social activity.

“We are a family business, and we know how precious visiting your loved ones is, so we hope the new Residents and their families enjoy our collection and spending time together in the garden.”

A spokesperson for The Fairview Gardener, Chapel Lane, Birdwood, said: “Bishop’s Cleeve sits in a lovely spot and we are thrilled to be able to help make the garden a little oasis of peace and charm.

“We will certainly be visiting at some point in the future to see how the garden is developing and of course meeting some of the new Residents who will be enjoying the outdoor space.

“We are always happy to offer our gardening advice and expertise.”

“We have picked up some excellent gardening tips and the centres can rest assured that the plants are going to a great place where they will be enjoyed by both Colleagues and Residents.”
