Maxine Smith, owner of Flowersmiths, said: "We're really proud of it, it's been a bit of a rollercoaster, as it is for everybody with a small business, but we're really proud to have reached the 10 year milestone.

"We're excited to have reached this milestone, especially after the rollercoaster of the last few years!

"We have special offers on around the shop, we got a cake made by our next-door shop neighbours and bucks fizz for everybody.

"We're enjoying the sunshine, and the shop looks lovely in the sun.

"We have had quite a few of our regular customers and new customers through the door, that's been brilliant."

She added: "We've had some lovely comments about the shop, of nice memories from the last 10 years from people.

"They become friends after 10 years. I have one staff member who has been with me since the start, Karen, she's been a great help.

"A year and a half ago, we took on a new staff member, Marcia, who has become a lovely part of the Flowersmiths team."
