Kemps Plants, the popular garden centre that donates the Christmas tree seen on the Westerleigh village green every year, and has supported the Alexander Hosea Primary School in Wickwar with the creation of its vegetable garden, has moved.

  The garden centre that has moved to the other side of Westerleigh village and is now situated on the Henfield Road opposite the abattoir, opened its doors to the public on Saturday the 27th March. 

 "After sixteen years in business we were ready to move and expand, and are very pleased with the new site," said Lee Kemp.

"It was very tight but we managed to open on time, and had a fantastic response from the public," he said.

The new centre has created jobs, and Craig who will be joining the team in April, will be writing an occasional feature on the yatepeople site about container gardening.
