Hi, I’m Helen. My love of flowers began long before I started as a florist 28 years ago as an apprentice in a flower shop in Liverpool. I worked hard and ended up owning a florist’s in Leigh, Lancashire and also taught floristry at St. Helens College.
I moved onto Marks and Spencer’s head office in London training their staff at customer service but ultimately my passion for floristry was too strong. I worked at a flower shop in Sandbach part-time for 10 years but always wanted to run my own florist and do things my way again. So with a little saving and fantastic support from husband Andrew, Flowers on the Cobbles was born!
Flowers on the Cobbles is about a team of fabulous people, all passionate about beautiful flowers. Jan, a former primary school teacher, decided on a career change but uses the same principles from her teaching as she does with her flowers. Helen number 2, has worked in a large florist in London for several years and is a fabulous asset to have around. And then there’s Emma! The newest member of our team, who started with us doing work experience whilst studying floristry at Reaseheath College. She was so good, she became a permanent team member! I feel so blessed to have such an amazing team of like-minded people around me every day!
We’ve been humbled by the feedback from local people who have been so supportive of the shop. We are building quite a pile of “thank you” notes from happy customers which are a testament to the skill & quality of our work. We love brightening your day with beautiful bouquets and stunning arrangements, so if you need flowers delivering in Sandbach, Middlewich, Holmes Chapel, Congleton, Crewe and anywhere in between – give us a call!
Fabulous flowers are what make us tick.
