Did you know that the Friends Flower Shop at the Eastbourne DGH is now in a lovely cabin by the entrance to the Visitor Car Park? And did you also know that it offers a Florist Service to the general public and not just the visitors, staff and patients at the Eastbourne DGH? The shop is run by volunteers, so expenses are low and all the profits go to support the Eastbourne DGH. This also means that the beautiful arrangements are very attractively priced, which means that you get more for your money.

The Friends Flower Shop has flowers for all occasions, as well as floral gifts for patients, loved ones or friends. This year Mother’s Day is on Sunday 11 March 2018 and Easter Day is on Sunday 1 April 2018, so why not get your order in early? The shop may well be the best value in town for buying a single red rose on Valentine’s Day (Wednesday 14th February 2018) or you may want to choose a beautiful arrangement. You can order or buy your flowers in person or ring the Flower Shop on 01323 417400 ext 4033 and you can even pay by card over the phone. The volunteers will make you a beautiful bespoke gift that will delight the lucky recipient. There is 30 minutes free parking in the main car park, so collecting or choosing your gift is easy.

Flower arrangements are for sad times as well as happy ones and the Friends Flower Shop offers a personal and professional funeral flower service, at a fraction of the cost of a high street florist. The volunteers will listen to what you want, give you a quote and your arrangement can be delivered to a local undertaker for no extra cost, thanks to a generous volunteer.

So when you think ‘flowers’ think the Friends Flower Shop at the Eastbourne DGH.
The Friends are recruiting volunteers to help run the Flower Shop – do you have a few hours to spare and would you like to “make a difference?” If so please call: 01323 438236 to find out more. You don’t need any floristry skills as we would like to recruit people to man the shop and serve customers, although experienced flower arrangers would be very welcomed. Please get in touch if you can help.
