Paradise Park Garden Centre supports Save The Children

Visitors to Paradise Park supported Save the Children charity to the tune of £500 by paying £1 for each activity they undertook.
 
Stephanie and Rosemary from the charity’s East Sussex branch visited the Avis Road venue. They collected the cheque from Mark Gilbert, a director at Tates of Sussex which runs the park.
 
“We’re delighted to have been able to support the work of this great charity”, says Mark.
 
“Well done to everyone who contributed during the school holidays.”
 
The Save the Children Fund is an international non-governmental organisation.
Paradise Park Garden Centre is Tates of Sussex’s original centre, first opening its doors to the public in 1989.

The Sussex Garden Buildings Centre displays one of the largest selections of garden buildings in the region.

Alongside the garden centre, you will find some of the finest gardens in Sussex, with several small lakes, waterfalls, fountains and plant houses.

In 1982, horticulturist Jonathan Tate joined the family business and started about establishing a plant nursery in mid Sussex. He wanted to propagate unusual plants for sale to members of the public.

Jonathan was inspired by the new concept of the garden centre emerging in the UK.

He saw a place where people could visit and purchase everything they needed for their garden from one place.

He decided he would develop what is now Tates of Sussex Garden Centres.
