Garden House Hospice Care is set to reopen its flagship store in Hitchin, following some much-needed renovations.

The grand reopening of the Bancroft site will take place on Thursday, January 26. 

As one of the hospice's oldest stores, the shop has been given a new lease of life with new paint, flooring, lighting and signage throughout.

The team will be be cutting the ribbon at 10am and welcome the community to come along for some refreshments, chat to staff and volunteers, and support your local hospice.

Carla Pilsworth, director of income generation at Garden House Hospice Care, said: “Hitchin Bancroft is one of our oldest charity shops on the high street. After decades of trading, it was in need of a refresh.

“We will be cutting the ribbon and reopening our doors this Thursday at 10am. Save the date and come and join us to explore our new stock, meet the team and enjoy some refreshments. We hope to see you there!”

Letchworth-based Garden House Hospice Care has 12 shops across North Herts, catering to different needs including clothing, homeware, books, toys and even pre-loved bridal wear.
