THE community has celebrated a long-running flower shop which is continuing to serve the town, however it can during the pandemic.

Jean’s Flower Boutique has been operating for four generations on Lowther Street in Whitehaven.

Current owners, Lisa Robson and her mum Jean, have adapted during the pandemic to carry on serving their loyal customers.

And readers of The Whitehaven News appreciate it, with 407 of you showing your gratitude on our post. Natalie Burns said: “Amazing little shop, well done Lisa and Jean.”

Debbie Leech said: “Well done to both of you, you were both so supportive to my parents when they needed it.

“Definitely two treasures Whitehaven should be proud to have.”

Louise Marie said: “Always have lovely floral tributes from you. Well done.”

Lisa Coyle posted: “Beautiful flowers ordered from Australia through Jeans Flowers sent to one of my best friends in Cumbria, made easy with total satisfaction.”

Claire Dunn said: “My dad used to tell a story of Jean’s mother before the shop when she had a stall in the market place.

“Her marketing technique was when she saw the men leaving the market pubs she would shout ‘now make sure you take some flowers home for your ladies to make them happy’.”

Ann Scott said: “Well done to you both – I’ve never been disappointed with your flowers and always a friendly service. A smile costs nothing.”

Jenny Brumby said: “Absolutely fantastic – very well deserved.”
