The new Friends Flower Shop opens its doors at Eastbourne DGH today (3 February).
After weeks of work, the shop has a new home in a cabin outside the hospital in the car park.
Debbie Wicks from the Friends Flower Shop said, “The Flower Shop at the Eastbourne DGH offers a florist’s service to the local community as well as to the visitors and patients of the hospital. They can provide anything from beautiful bouquets to funeral flowers at very affordable prices. What makes this shop stand out from the rest is that it is run by volunteers and all the profits go towards providing equipment and amenities for the Eastbourne DGH. Do come and see them when they move to their new location.”
An official opening will take place next Thursday (9 February) by the Lord Lieutenant for East Sussex, Mr Peter Field.
