Have a closer look at centre plans
RESIDENTS can have a closer look at proposals for a new garden centre planned for Hampton at a display later this month. The exhibition about plans for an £8 million Dobbies Garden Centre, in Cygnet Park, will be held at Serpentine Green Shopping Centre on June 23 between 2pm and 8pm. If given the go ahead, the centre will create 120 jobs, both part-time and full-time. Dobbies already run 25 centres across the country, attracting 12 million customers every year. It is hoped that building work will begin in spring 2011, with the centre opening in the autumn of the same year.
