         The Beauty of Farewell Flowers!


    It’s heartwarming to see a beautiful display of flowers at a funeral. However, with the spiralling price of even a low-key funeral, it’s comforting to know that the high cost of real flowers can be offset by considering renting the artificial variety.
With the high quality of modern artificial silk flower displays, especially those supplied by Farewell Flowers, you, like our family at the recent loss of a loved one, will be more than happy to realize you can make an excellent choice without having to pay the extortionate price for the real thing. Floral tributes that in most cases are used once, and then to finish up discarded on a rubbish heap.
Don’t think that you are being mean by going for the artificial option. To the eye they are just as pleasing and in this modern throwaway society, you have the knowledge and comfort of knowing that as well as having served their purpose for you, they can offer the same degree of comfort to others who have lost their dear ones.
If this is something you would consider, then I would advise you to consult Pam Pennington of ‘Farewell Flowers’ based at                                                                                  8 Wordsworth Place

               BOLD STREET BEDS                          Preston's Premier Bed Shop

If you are in need of a complete new bed or maybe a mattress or a fresh headboard then there are plenty of retail stores in the local area. However, if you are looking for personal service, excellent products and unbeatable deals then look no further than BOLD STREET BED CENTRE in Preston.

After a recent visit, our resident 'Bard' found just the bed he wanted, ensuring 'sweet dreams' for years to come. However, it was no easy decision as there is such a choice of beds, ranging from the conventional to the latest in memory foam mattresses, but after trying nearly every bed in the store he eventually made his final decision - And after the first night in the 'Arms of Morpheus', he was happy to report that he had chosen well.

Now is a great time to visit as the seasonal sales have offers where you could find the bed of your dreams with anything up to 60% off the retail price.

(Mrs Bard wants to know who this Morpheus is!)
