Florist marks four decades

Have your say

ONE of Sheffield’s longest-established florists is preparing to mark 40 years in business.

Monica F Hewitt florists, on Middlewood Road, on the edge of Hillsborough Park, is holding a week of celebrations starting on Monday.

Monica’s daughter Helen Murray, who also works at the florists, said: “We would like to invite readers, friends and customers to join us for celebratory cupcakes and the chance to see our beautiful selection of flowers and plants.

“We will be displaying our own memorabilia from the last 40 years of trading.”

She added: “The week will be a double celebration for us because, on the 8th of September, our most recent member of staff and gifted apprentice, April Bell, 17, is at the finals of the UK Retail Apprentice of the Year awards in London where she is one of three nominees.

“We would like to wish her the very best and hope she can bring this award home.”
