Garden centre puts on the greatest festive display for pets


A garden centre in Wales has been named as having the Greatest Festive Pets Team for its outstanding display of Christmas pet products and services.


The Old Railway Line at Brecon, Powys, took gold at GTN’s Greatest Christmas Awards, sponsored by Gardman, which were presented during Glee at Spring Fair held at the NEC Birmingham this week.


The judges said: "The Old Railway Line has a Christmassy welcome for pets at the front door, a team leader who is knowledgeable and friendly, a very Christmassy pet department and a lovely pet friendly cafe. 


"It's no wonder pet owners in the area flock to The Old Railway Line Garden Centre just as this owner and his dog, who always travels in the sidecar who were coming for pet food supplies and to have a coffee in the pet cafe (see picture below).

"The judges had no doubt in announcing Sarah and her team as The Greatest Pet Christmas Team for 2017."



A silver award was presented to Planters Tamworth and bronze to Frosts Woburn Sands.
