Bradford garden centre renews partnership with leading tourism body

The team at Tong Garden Centre has renewed its partnership with Welcome to Yorkshire’s Y30 group of Yorkshire-based businesses who work with the UK’s leading tourism agency to achieve more together for the county.

In the course of the last three years, Tong’s owners Mark Farnsworth and Tom Megginson have invested over £2 million to transform the Tong Lane business and have created over 100 new jobs.

Mark Farnsworth said: “We’re very proud of our Yorkshire roots and to be associated with Y30. This group of businesses are ambitious, innovative and share Tong’s passion for championing Yorkshire.

“The renewal coincides with our exciting plans to make further investments that will bring even more tourists to Tong and the surrounding area.”

Welcome to Yorkshire chief executive Sir Gary Verity DL added: “Tong Garden Centre has gone from strength to strength over the past three years. It provides a first-class experience for the whole family thanks to a superb offering of retail, food and play. I’m delighted that our partnership is set to continue and very much look forward to hearing more about Tong’s future plans.”
