Wyevale Garden Centres announces name change for Crowders

Members of the local community are being invited to help choose the new name for Crowders, following its acquisition by Wyevale Garden Centres last week.


From today (Monday February 8), visitors to the garden centre will be able to cast their votes at the centre, with three potential names on offer.

The proposed names are: ‘Wolds View’, ‘Banovallum’, or simply ‘Horncastle’.

Wyevale Garden Centres will be donating £500 to local voluntary emergency services charity LIVES in recognition of the community’s support for the initiative. Crowders Garden Centre has for many years supported LIVES, and Wyevale Garden Centres say they are “delighted” to continue to support.

Voting boxes are in the garden centre from February 8 through to February 28 inclusive, so visit today and have your say.

Ken Dawson, Garden Centre Manager at Crowders, said: “We are thrilled to invite visitors at Crowders to play an important role in shaping the future name of the centre to ensure the new name is in keeping with its rich history and heritage, and chimes with local community values.”

Trevor Blake, a long serving member of staff at Crowders, said: “Crowders has so much heritage and we are delighted to be part of the renaming process. I have been a colleague at the centre for 15 years and it is thrilling have an input in this significant change for the centre.”
