A POPULAR family run business has been named as the Best Destination Garden Centre of the Year 2023/2024.

It is the second consecutive year that Bents Garden and Home has received the award – but it is its eight win of it in total.

The Glazebury Garden centre received the award on Monday at the annual GCA conference in the Cotswolds.

In a social media post, Bents said it is ‘absolutely delighted’ and ‘honoured’ to receive the award.

Bents thanked its customers and colleagues and said it could not have achieved this without each and every one of them.

“Thank you for making this happen and for the making Bents the award-winning destination that we all love,” an Instagram post by the Garden Centre reads.

Following the awards, the GCA chief executive Peter Burks said: “The commitment and hard work our member garden centres put in each year just gets better and better.

“Through our annual inspections and awards, we know our members have some of the highest standards in our industry.

“They should all be proud of the example they set to others.

"I’d like to congratulate all our worthy winners this year for their dedication to ensuring the public receives an experience to remember when visiting them."
