Congratulations to Nicola Pugh who has joined the HTA Council as the Representative for the Welsh region.
As Business Development and Marketing Manager of Pugh’s Garden Centre’s based in South Wales, Nicola is responsible for maintaining and growing the brand's strong roots, ensuring the growth of the business, implementing new garden retail concepts and adapting to an ever-growing industry.
Nicola said of her appointment, "Garden centre retail and marketing has been engrained in my ethos since childhood, growing up in a family garden centre business established over 65 years ago across South Wales. With a number of strong Welsh horticultural businesses in an ever-changing retail landscape, I am excited and passionate to be given the opportunity to represent them and gain a better understanding of the challenges we face as an industry. With 2020 being a year like no other I feel it is more important than ever to be committed to support each other and keep communication flowing across the different regions, to enable us to grow and learn together."
