Noticed on facebook, St Johns Garden Centre has closed, and planning permission put in for 240 houses.

Drove in as we passed today, yes all locked up, cars still going up the drive, as there is no closed notice on the road sign

Something on FB or Gazette I think that the father had died and the son/family didnt want to continue so sold it for redevelopment.  Wonder how those who opposed it for a few weeks once a year will feel now when they have building works and a heck of a lot more traffic and people all the time.

Well at the end of the day they were flaunting planning laws 

Hope they don't  think they can do the same  if  they don't  get planning to build.

  • Well that didn't last long, heard on the grape vine that it re opened last week, just 3 weeks after liquidation, drove in yesterday just to confirm, yes all up and running again.
  • Bet their creditors are well pleased

Happens all over our country, and not just garden centres either.

all you need do is add something to the companies name like (2019) Ltd so I have been led to believe.

try googling how many companies close yet open a few weeks later.

Car sales sites are well known for it..

sell a load of dodgy cars, stop trading, open with a like name, for Instance,

Kerbside Motors - ceased trading

Kerbside Motors (2019) = new company, not liable for the old company..

might need to swop round directors a bit though

would take far too long to explain why we retired 10 years early and moved here,
but never regretted doing either.

If its in the GAZETTE, could be as much newsworthy as the Southend News Network is..lol

 

I got banned from making comments as I spoke up.

democracy is a losing word these days..
