Paul Cooling 1964 – 2022

On behalf of the IGCA Board, we are deeply saddened by the sudden passing of IGCA Vice President, Paul Cooling (Coolings Nurseries, UK).   He suffered a massive stroke recently and lost the fight on the 29th December 2022.

Paul served on the IGCA Board since 2013 and was elected to 1st Vice President in 2021.  He was a highly valued member of the Garden Centre Association in UK and a well loved and respected member of our industry.

We extend our sincere condolences to his family and loved ones.   Anyone who wishes to send them memories of Paul and messages of support can email:
