Plea to re-open Garden Centres

Our MP Nick Gibb has written to the Secretary of State to request he considers allowing Garden Centres to re-open.  In his letter Mr Gibb has disclosed that between 20 and 30 percent of all garden and house plants sold in these centres are grown in West Sussex, particularly around Bognor Regis and Littlehampton.  This is a key part of our local economy with 70 percent of turnover occurring between March and June each year.
