Local florist celebrates 35 years

INDEPENDENT South Liverpool florist, Booker Flowers & Gifts, is celebrating its 35th birthday by gifting bouquets to local community champions.

Headed up by owner Gemma Wakerley, the local business is asking for local residents to nominate their champions via their social media channels.

The 35 handmade arrangements will include a select number in coral and jade, traditional colours used to mark a 35-year anniversary.

Gemma said: “The last few months have been difficult for independent businesses across the region as we continue to adapt to new ways of working, but we feel incredibly thankful that we have been able to face those challenges and come out stronger than ever.

“It’s fantastic that we’re now able to celebrate such an important birthday with our friends, family and customers in the community by giving something back. We’re asking people to tell us who they think deserves the title of Community Champion and we’ll do the rest, creating a stunning bouquet for our chosen nominees.

“Being community-centred has always been a priority for me, and it seemed only fitting to involve our long-standing customers and residents of Liverpool in our upcoming celebrations.”
