Popular garden centre reopens its doors to sell Christmas Trees weeks after devastating blaze
A popular local garden centre has re-opened in time for Christmas after being decimated by a huge inferno three weeks ago.
Ansell Garden Centre on Holloway Lane, Sipson, has reopened to sell Christmas Trees in time for the festive season, after a devastating fire three weeks ago.
A large fire engulfed the premises on 18th November, sending plumes of smoke across west London. 100 firefighters were required to extinguish the blaze.
Amazingly owners reopened their doors five days later to start clearing the site and, while rebuilding is yet to begin, it started selling Christmas Trees from the site on 28th November.
There has been an outpouring of support from well-wishers with a campaign on social media to persuade people to support the rebirth of the business by buying a tree.
The cause of the fire is being investigated.
