A ceremonial festive wreath was placed to mark the topping out of the new complex at Notcutts in Ipswich Road.

Caroline Notcutt, vice chairman of Notcutts Garden Centres, placed a ceremonial wreath on the new restaurant to mark the occasion alongside Andrew Notcutt, non-executive director of Notcutts, and Barnes construction director, Mark Bailey.

Ms Notcutt said: "I am delighted to celebrate the topping out at Notcutts Woodbridge and it is wonderful to see that the construction is making great progress.

"Notcutts Woodbridge is a special part of our family's heritage, so it will be fantastic to provide visitors with a new space to relax and dine at the garden centre for years to come."
