Trevenson Moor garden centre
Trevenson Moor Garden centre at Tehidy is undergoing a major
refurbishment, thanks to Objective One investment.
Since taking over the business in 1997, Chris and Lynne Stevenson
have worked hard to upgrade the facilities. Their long term
plan has always been to replace the elderly wooden green house,
which is at the heart of the centre.
So they developed a business plan and then began the search
"A work colleague recommended the services of Exeter
based Cornish Horticulture Enterprises to me," said Mr
Stevenson. "They sent down a representative, Roger Whilding,
who visited the site and helped with the application, which
culminated in a successful Objective one application."
The project is being co-funded by DEFRA and the European
Agricultural Guidance and Guarantee Fund through Cornish Horticulture
Enterprises, which is the delegated grant scheme for horticulture
under Objective One for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
Specialist suppliers Copley Greenhouses from Weston Super
Mare arrived last week to demolish the old greenhouse and
begin the work for the base for the new one.
The new structure, which is aluminium and galvanised steel,
should be up and running within the next few weeks.
"In the meantime, it's business as usual," said
Mrs Stevenson, who runs the greenhouse and garden centre
Mr Stevenson heads the paving and landscaping business.
"We've set up a temporary office, and apart from the
temporary absence of a greenhouse, we are trading as normal."
The next stage in the improvement work at the garden centre
is to develop access and parking.
In the meantime, the centre's eight staff are working hard
to ensure as little inconvenience as possible to customers
during the work.
