Schoolchildren from across Shropshire will perform the official opening of our brand new Bridgnorth branch after winning a competition.
Taking place on Friday September 23 and Saturday 24, the Grand Launch weekend of the Chartwell Park branch is a celebration of the completion of the six-acre site.
Managing Director Tudor Griffiths said: “The Friday event is aimed more at our trade customers and we’ll have a number of industry experts on site to offer free professional advice, as well as some promotional giveaways. We’ll be joined by local MP Philip Dunne in the afternoon too, and we’d love to welcome both new and existing customers, particularly those who haven’t had the chance to visit us yet.”
On Saturday, the Tudor Griffiths team will be joined by three school pupils who were selected as the winners of a Design a Garden competition earlier this summer.
Winner Issy Lear (aged 9) from St Peter’s Primary School in Wem will get the chance to perform the official opening at 2pm, along with runners up Olivia Hall from Shrewsbury High School and Noah Faulkner of Harlescott Junior School in Shrewsbury.
Issy will also receive £1,000 worth of vouchers for her school to bring her project to life, and the runners-up will each receive £250 worth of vouchers to spend at Tudor Griffiths on landscaping materials.
“Saturday’s celebrations are for our retail customers and there will be all kinds of children’s activities available including a bouncy castle and face painting, free refreshments, and a visit from the Dulux dog,” said Tudor. “We had such a fantastic response to our Design a Garden competition, and we wanted to make our winner and runners-up the stars of the show on this very special weekend.”
The Grand Launch weekend timings are Friday September 23 from 9am to 4pm and Saturday September 24 from 10am to 3pm – we’d love to see you there!
