Wyevale Garden Centres is partnering with The Royal British Legion, by joining their ‘Thank you’ campaign. This is to mark the centenary of the ending to the First World War.
The campaign acknowledges and gives thanks to all those who helped to shape our world during WWI. It will launch on the 22nd August 2018 and run for 12 weeks until Armistice Day, 11th November 2018.

Also, Wyevale will be selling a range of poppy-themed products in centres. This will include poppy feeders and decorative Poppy Pots, as well as poppy pins at till points.
The campaign will extend to Wyevale Garden Centres’ restaurants and cafes. Three Royal British Legion Afternoon Tea events will happen on the 5th September, 3rd October and 7th November. Military personnel will enjoy half-price fish and chips every Friday in the period.
