We’re excited to share the news that Bingley Garden Centre has a new centre manager, Dave Denton.

An experienced retail specialist, Dave began his career with Yorkshire Garden Centres as a member of the leisure team at Tong Garden Centre before being promoted to supervisor and, latterly, manager of the garden sundries department. He replaces Marc Salama who was promoted to the new position of group commercial plant manager earlier in the year.

Dave said: “There are a lot of experienced members within this team, some of whom have worked at this site for many years and it has been great to hear what thoughts are on our plans for the site moving forward. It has been a real pleasure getting to know the guys and I am looking forward to working with them to provide an exceptional experience for our visitors.

“I am looking forward to helping the team and the site to reach their full potential. The team at Bingley have a lot to offer and the site itself has some great opportunities for new and interesting visual merchandising, educational displays and a new layout.”

Andy Mears, our Group Retail and Operations Manager, said: “Dave’s retail experience with Primark and Aldi combined with a great team makes for an exciting future as Bingley evolves into the next stage of its development.”

When Dave’s not working, he enjoys family time, spending time outdoors and nurturing the wildlife that visits his garden.

Bingley Garden Centre will host a ‘Netwalking’ group in partnership with West and North Yorkshire Chamber on 7th March. The group will explore the history and heritage of Bingley before ending the walk with refreshments in Hattie’s Kitchen.
