5 Sep 2020
closed 5 months, 3 weeks ago

After owning nurseries for 29 years I have never experienced such damaging times for the sector with rising costs not being met by the funding rates available. Business Rates are a large drain on the sector and can mean the difference between nurseries being able to stay open and having to close.

Zoos, aquariums, and similar organisations across the country carry out all sorts of conservation work, animal rescue, and public education.
