Charity Easter Egg Hunt!!


We’re really proud to announce that the proceeds from this years Easter Egg hunt will be split between two very deserving Cornish Charities.


NEW-LOGO200x199K9 Crusaders  – K9 Crusaders Dog Welfare Charitable Trust (no:1138278) based in Cornwall, England.
We deal with all kinds of issues relating to dogs, from rescue and rehoming via our Welfare Centre in Bissoe, to behavioural support and advice on many aspects of dog husbandry. We are, to our knowledge, one of the only rescue centres in Cornwall who do not have paid staff, everyone at K9 is a volunteer, so all the money raised goes to care for the dogs. We are independent and have no other income stream, and rely solely on donations to keep going and on volunteers to try to keep up with the ever increasing demand for help.



CAAP – CAAP was formed by a group of parents of children with additional needs, to support families to access activities during school holidays. We are currently pending charity status.

The criteria for CAAP are children and young people aged 0-25 years who have (or had) a statement to attend a mainstream school or go to a special school, ARB or PRU. If a child does not meet this critera but cannot attend mainstream activities, a professional involved in the child’s care can sign the referral form.

We seek grant funding to subsidise activities and these will be either just for the disabled child, for both the disabled child and their siblings or for the whole family to attend. Once registered, we add you to the secure email list and you will be notified in this way of upcoming activities. We also put all activities on our Facebook page.


COMING SOON – Cornwall Kitchen Studio



Cornwall Kitchen Studio is located in Carnon Downs. Our priority is to provide excellent Service, Value and Choice.

We know that as long as we focus on these three areas, people will want to buy from us. However, we really do understand that just buying from us should not be the end of the relationship, we would very much like you to recommend us to your friends and family and we would not expect you to do that unless you feel you have had a good experience.

We’re Hiring!!


* * VACANCIES* * *


We have several summer temp vacancies open!


The Role –


Working in a busy garden centre is not unlike working in any other retail environment. Your role will be to serve our fantastic customers, so that could be helping them to find what they’re looking for, loading goods into their vehicle, representing the business as our friendly face on the tills or even being part of the waiting team in our restaurant. You will also be responsible for helping to keep our lovely garden centre clean & tidy.


Who We’re Looking For –


On a daily basis you could be based in any of our departments throughout the garden centre so we’re looking for people who like to mix it up!

We like team players, hard workers & great all rounders.


So if you don’t mind getting your hands dirty, love customer interaction & fancy working for the biggest garden centre in Cornwall then apply today!!
