garden centre - The Rising Sun Nurseries - entrance sign (1)

The Rising Sun Nurseries garden centre on Middlewich Road in Wistaston is selling a book to raise money for a charity, writes Jonathan White.

The book is called ‘When Beetroot turned red’ and was written by Mark Cook, who is a family friend of the garden centre owners.

The book has been illustrated by Neil Pollard.

It is a children’s story based on the much-loved Beetroot, The Rising Sun Nurseries cat, who sadly passed away last year.

Beetroot fantasises about his reaction when uninvited guests break into the garden centre and knock over a tin of red paint.

The book is available from The Rising Sun Nurseries priced at £3.49 with all proceeds going to the RSPCA Crewe, Nantwich & District Branch.
