Directors and staff at a Bradford Garden Centre are celebrating after being announced as finalists in the seventh annual Bradford Means Business awards.

Tong Garden Centre has been shortlisted in the Job Creator category that rewards businesses that have played an outstanding role in boosting employment in the Bradford district through innovation, investment and risk-taking in the face of tough economic conditions.

Co-owner of Tong Garden Centre Mark Farnsworth said he is delighted with the news: “We’re very proud of the fact that we have created over 100 new jobs since we took over Tong two years ago and to have that achievement rewarded with the place in the final of the Job Creator category of the Bradford Means Business awards is great news.

“The Telegraph & Argus reports that local unemployment is down to just 2.4% and we’d like to think that we have played a part in growing the Bradford economy.”

The awards are organised by Bradford Telegraph & Argus in partnership with Bradford Council and the Bradford Chamber and they have become the highlight of the business calendar in the district. The awards are a showcase for businesses large and small, entrepreneurs both new and established, in every sector.

The awards ceremony comprises a drinks reception and dinner and takes place at the Aagrah Midpoint Suite in Thornbury, on Thursday, July 6.

The Job Creator award is sponsored by Keelham Farm Shop. Tong Garden Centre occupies a 14 acre site in Tong village. It is one of Yorkshire’s biggest garden centres with 110,000 square feet of retail space and parking for up to 700 cars.
