The garden centre is asking residents and customers to contribute with their own memories to mark the completion of the foundations being laid at the site.

Darren Brooks, general manager at Notcutts, said: "Notcutts has a well-established history in Woodbridge and we know many local people and regular customers have their own fond memories of visiting the garden centre over the years, perhaps working here when they were younger, celebrating special occasions with family, or purchasing a plant that may be a favourite in their garden today.

"As works progress on our new restaurant, we are delighted to share this special journey with our local community and we encourage people to share their memories and artefacts for our time capsule.

"As well as celebrating a key milestone in our redevelopment project, we hope the time capsule will provide future generations with a wonderful snapshot of the history of Notcutts in our hometown of Woodbridge."
