A FAMILY-RUN garden centre and florist is celebrating its 25th anniversary of trading in Newport.

Based on the High Street, R&R Saggers is one of the many companies to sign up to the Newport Business Association's (NBA's) Think Local campaign.

Roger Saggers, who owns and runs the company with his wife Roz, said: "My family has been in business in Newport since the 1930s.

"Whilst we may not be able to compete on price with the major retail outlets, like many small businesses, our high level of expertise and personal service is second to none.

"We always try and go the extra mile for our customers for example, we are more than happy to come out and discuss and suggest ideas for their gardens and deliver and position plants for planting.

"The Think Local campaign is a fantastic initiative. We welcome any incentives that will help us promote our business during these tough economic times. We always try our best to shop locally ourselves. Why spend money on fuel, when everything we need is on our doorstep?"

The Think Local campaign aims to beat the recession by informing the public about the strong economic, environmental and social benefits of buying locally.
