UK: Blue Diamond acquires 44th Garden Centre

Blue Diamond has acquired Fosseway Garden Centres in Moreton-in-Marsh, Gloucestershire, along with the purchase of Beckworth Emporium located in Northamptonshire, which got completed.

Beckworth is located in Mears Ashby, nestled in the Northamptonshire countryside near the Sywell Aerodrome, not far from the A14. The centre has a total turnover of £9.3m, of which over 60% is restaurant and food-related (£3.5m catering, 2.0m food sales), which we will develop further while significantly growing the horticultural and gardening sales. A Blue Diamond clothing department will be added next year.

Fosseway Garden Centre was established by the husband-and-wife team, Tim and Gill Godwin. With a family history of dairy farming, they bought the plot near Moreton-in-Marsh with 100 acres of arable land and set out on what they thought was a farming future ahead of them.

The garden centre currently has sales of almost £9m. It has been a member of Choice Marketing, the garden centre buying and marketing combine, since 2017.
