New Growth at Squire’s Garden Centres

Renowned garden centre chain announces two new managers

Anne Dedman and Ryan Bailey have been unveiled as the latest management appointments at Squire’s.

Having joined Squire’s back in September 2001, Anne Dedman (pictured) is now Manager at the chain’s garden centre in Long Ditton. Previously the manager at Squire’s in Cobham, Anne has worked her way up in the company from her first role as a part-time till operator.

Anne said: “I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to take the Long Ditton centre to the next level not only in terms of sales, but also with customer service. ‘Our impressive extension and refurbishment, which has increased the shop space by 25%, has ensured our range and levels of stock can meet the growing customer demand and the shop has a fresh and inviting look with an exciting new range of giftware.”

Squire’s are celebrating their 80th anniversary this year, and a major £900,000 investment in extending and refurbishing Long Ditton has formed a central part of the celebrations. 

In addition, Ryan Bailey has been promoted to Manager at Squire’s Garden Centre in Stanmore. He has been with Squire’s for three years and was previously Assistant Manager at Squire’s in Twickenham before taking up the same role at Squire’s in Stanmore. 

Ryan commented: “I am delighted to be heading up the team at Squire’s in Stanmore. It’s a great garden centre, with a fantastic selection of plants and gifts. I hope to bring my knowledge and expertise to enhance the shopping experience for customers, and to bring inspiration and support to the team here.”
