A brand new florist has opened for business in Trafalgar Road, Greenwich.
Mike Catterall Floral Designs had its grand opening over the weekend and welcomed customers with a glass of champagne.
Mike, who has twenty years experience as a florist, told Greenwich.co.uk a little about how the new shop came about:
I moved to London eight years ago, and would always come to Greenwich at the weekends and decided I really wanted to live here. It was when I was looking for somewhere to live here that I found the shop at the same time and it all fell together very quickly.
The shop will be open seven days a week and Mike even intends to open on Christmas Day for those customers who need a very last minute bouquet.
The new business caters for all floral requirements but Mike tells me most of his intricate work is for funerals and has included a pint of beer, a cup and saucer, Nemo the fish from 'Finding Nemo' and even a pair of Dorothy's shoes from 'The Wizard of Oz'.
Mike Catterall Floral Designs is at 93 Trafalgar Road.
