Golden Anniversary Thanks< < Back to News & Events
December 2018 saw Dean’s Garden Centre celebrate its 50th Anniversary and it was celebrated in a number of ways throughout the last few months of the year, from a golden anniversary display containing a memory book for customers and staff to sign, special anniversary offers, a golden anniversary quiz, a children’s colouring competition and a golden treasure hunt.
A special charity day was also held on 6th December which included a raffle, tombola, second-hand book stall and cake stall, to raise money for our nominated charity of the year 2018, Macmillan Cancer Support, which proved to be a great success by raising £1253.75.
This was then followed on 7th December, the official anniversary date, by a celebration day where staff dressed up in gold themed attire, and customers who visited either the York or Scarborough Garden Centres received a golden envelope which contained a 50-50 chance of winning a prize worth from 50p to £50!
The staff also celebrated in style at a Golden Anniversary Party, consisting of a lovely evening of dinner, drinks & dancing, along with a staff presentation to the Partners, of a beautiful engraved plaque and wooden bench which are now on display within the York Garden Centre for our customers to see.
We would like to take this opportunity once again to thank all of our loyal customers for their continued support of this family business.
