Now we know we have already advised you that our Christmas shop has opened but we wanted to keep it a secret that we had secured a celebrity to make the official opening.

So here she is’s Ballyclare Primary School pupil Ruby Oswald with her Grandmother Annette Leathem and Barbara Wallace from our Garden Centre.

Ruby kindly agreed to cut the ribbon on her recent visit earlier this week and by way of thanks left the Garden Centre with her very own Christmas Teddy Bear with our compliments.

A BIG THANKS from all of us at Coleman’s Garden Centre to you Ruby and we trust your teddy bear is behaving and you have found a name for him? Or was it a her? Let us know on your next visit which we hope is very soon.
