A big thank you to our retirees

We knew this day would come!

We can't thank you enough for all your hard work and commitment.  You have all been inspirational with your positive attitudes and sunny natures.

You will all be missed by us all!


Sue Greaves

Sue has worked with us for 32 years!  Our Plant Area Manager with so much valuable plant knowledge.  Happy to turn her hand to anything, she could be found with her lollypop stick seeing in lorries, on the till, dressed up as a bee and if you didn't see her then her infectious laugh could be cheerfully heard around the garden centre.  Enjoy your retirement Sue with your husband and Terry the tortoise!

Fran Perks

Fran could be seen on the tills, always helping customers and so polite.  Her cheery smile first thing in the morning was just the ticket.  Fran was with us for 6 years and we all wish you a very happy retirement.


John Gordon

No one is actually sure how long John has worked at Fairweather's!  All the longest serving team members have always known him to be around.  John has worked at the garden centre and the nursery.  More recently looking after the National Agapanthus Collection.  Retiring during Covid we were unable to say a final farewell and every time we try and organise something, he's on holiday - obviously enjoying being retired!  We will catch you soon John!

30 year anniversary

Maggie Gallacher

7 years in Steff's Kitchen, Maggie has been so helpful nurturing the younger members of the team.  Our team have said Maggie has oodles of common sense and a brilliant sense of humour, we will miss you.  Enjoy putting your feet up Maggie!
