Lymefield Garden Centre is made up of four distinct areas of work, Garden Centre, Farm Shop, Tea Room & Landscaping. Each of these departments is customer-facing & requires the key skill of teamwork. We call ourselves the Lymefield team as many areas of our jobs overlap making working together essential. Throughout the year, our Garden Centre is a hive of activity beyond the sales through the till. We host many events for ourselves & for our local charities. These include a Santa’s Grotto, a Pumpkin Patch, Coffee Mornings, Pop-up Stall, Food Tastings & we are always adding more. Teamwork is essential for these events to work as our team is small but very productive. 

Teamwork is vital to ensure that the customer has the very best experience when they visit Lymefield. Working together to solve problems & delivery the very best service every time has always been at the front of the Lymefield Garden Centre ethos.

Continuous Learning

An expectation at Lymefield is that each member of staff will take on training & learning throughout their role, this may involve gaining qualifications, keeping updated with current legislation or teaching our newest staff members & apprentices. Be ensuring that everyone is continuously learning we can expand roles, host different events, & give our customers to best experience whenever they visit Lymefield.

Caring for the Environment

One of the things that staff regularly mention is the beautiful environment in which our place of work is set. Lymefield Garden Centre is placed in the river Etherow Valley with trees, woods & fields surrounding us on all sides.
Coming down into Lymefield from the village of Broadbottom, the sky opens out for our buildings & car park. There are often sheep in the fields for you to admire, buzzards can be spotted flying high in the sky as they hunt for prey & during the summer, there are plenty of migrating birds including swallows & swifts.
To add to the animal spotting, you will also meet our resident dog, Jyp. She is the family dog, living & playing in Lymefield Garden Centre. She is a friendly dog as she always wants to play ball, occasionally asking for strokes & cuddles but mainly it’s about playing with the ball, please!
