Theft of Large Christmas Wreath from Ivy Lane Florist

Wendy from Highlands Park

I am putting this post up on behalf of a friend who owns Ivy Lane Florist at Spotswood. Steph does so much for others and has a community garden in front of her shop for locals and some low life has decided that they wanted it. Please if you see it let Steph know


Feeling gutted / disappointed.
This year I have had a big wreath on display on my entrance wall to the shop ... this morning i get to the shop and it's gone :-(
.
It's been cut right from the top so would have required 2 people, and it's the size of a large hula hoop so someone would have seen
.
We have provided a community garden outside the shop where you are welcome to take herbs and salad ingredients we even have strawberries - dont take my work!
.

Would be nice to get it back ... or I hope someone enjoys their stolen present .

The Team from Ryman Healthcare Limited

Time spent in respite care can range from a single night to a few weeks. It provides a welcome break and peace of mind knowing that your loved one will receive round-the-clock care from friendly, experienced care teams.

May Kitchen knows how important it is to provide carers with a break. After visiting her husband Stuart in respite care at a Ryman village, she was tempted to move in herself! “If it was me, I think I would enjoy it because it’s just so beautiful and the food is good.”

Ryman villages provide warm and welcoming communities. Where residents can enjoy activities and outings while forming friendships along the way.
