A £3 MILLION development on the edge of Eastbourne is due to open next month (February) creating 16 new jobs.

The Hillier Garden Centre, on the former Glynley Nursery site in Hailsham Road, will be the company’s flagship store and, say bosses, represents a long-term investment in the area.

Hillier is renowned throughout the south with a strong reputation both as a grower and a garden centre retailer. It has also won 65 consecutive gold medals at the Chelsea Flower Show.

Tim Mason, business development manager, said, “The new garden centre represents a continuing commitment to business and employment to the area. We are thrilled Hillier can provide Eastbourne and surrounding areas with new opportunities in the coming year, especially when we are still suffering the effects of the recession.”
