GCA relocates to Oxfordshire
The Garden Centre Association has announced that, as part of its on-going programme of refining its administrative structure, the head office is to be re-located to Leafield, Oxfordshire.

Gillie Westwood, chief executive, and Pat Adams, administrator, said they are looking forward to the re-location to a new suite of offices within the Leafield Technical Centre complex.

David Danning, GCA chairman said the move will radically reduce running costs, and the association's carbon footprint 'with reduced mileage and travelling times for the head office team'.

"This also gives the GCA the opportunity to establish the structure necessary for the exciting development planned with Associated Independent Stores (AIS) that will give our members a powerful buying tool," he added.

Mr Danning continued: "Currently there are many changes within the retail gardening industry and the GCA is determined to build on its status as the organisation representing the Best of British Garden Centres."
