We are jumping for joy about our nomination in the Child Friendly Leeds (CFL) Awards.
Child Friendly Leeds is a Leeds City Council initiative that is designed to bring people together to put children and young people at the heart of the community and to make Leeds a child friendly city.
Our adventure playground opened last year as part of a series of improvements at Tong, and was nominated in the ‘Best Place for Children and Young People in Leeds’ category of the awards that took place earlier in the year.
Organised by the CFL Team, the awards evening was attended by VIPs including Nadiya Hussain from the Great British Bake Off, Sir Gary Verity, Chief Executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, Jamie Jones-Buchanan from the Leeds Rhinos, Claire Young from The Apprentice and the Lord Mayor.
Tong’s Marketing Manager, Jo Dales was delighted with the news, “The team at Tong works really hard to deliver a family friendly play experience for all of our visitors so it’s really rewarding that their efforts have been acknowledged with this nomination.”
Tong Garden Centre occupies a 17 acre site in Tong village. It is one of Yorkshire’s biggest garden centres with 110,000 square feet of retail space and parking for up to 1,000 cars.
