Mayor and MP open town centre florist in Burnham-On-Sea High Street

Burnham-On-Sea's Mayor formally opened a new flower shop in the town centre on Saturday morning (July 27th).

Flowers and Things has opened in the High Street unit previously occupied by DP Menswear until it closed earlier this year.

Julie Dean, who runs Flowers and Things, has moved her business from Victoria Street into the more prominent location and Mayor Martin Cox performed the ribbon-cutting ceremony.

"Small independent shops are the lifeblood of our town centre, so it's great to see this High Street unit being filled by a florist and I wish Julie all the best for a prosperous future here," said Cllr Cox.

Burnham's MP Tessa Munt also attended the opening and gave her support to the business. "It's great to see Burnham High Street so vibrant and I am delighted to support this new

Julie Dean, who has been a florist in Burnham for 15 years, said "I've been considering a move into a larger, more prominent town centre location for some time so when the lease for this shop came up, I was keen to take it on and we are delighted to have opened on time."
