Bunnings’ team members have already been busy ahead of today’s store opening, helping with projects in the Harlow area. These included building a new memorial garden for children at the Holy Cross Catholic Primary Academy and giving the Harlow Cricket Club entrance a refresh by adding plants, bark chips and solar lights.

Harlow Complex Manager, Joanne Broadhurst, said: “All our team members have worked really hard to get the store ready for opening and have undertaken many hours of training to make sure we have the expertise to help customers with home or garden projects.”

To celebrate the opening, Wayne Bridge, former England footballer is joining a welcome breakfast for team members.
