Love is all around on the High Street

It’s not long until Valentine’s Day is upon us and love is in the air. Roses

Often branded a marketing ploy, Valentine’s Day faces criticism from some, but for some businesses in Keynsham, the occasion is really embraced. Much TLC goes into the day and along with Christmas,Valentine’s Day can be their busiest time.

For Keynsham florists Wild About Flowers, months of preparation are required for the big day. “Working with fresh flowers in large volumes can give an added pressure, but we love preparing for our busy periods!” said owner Angela.

Charlotte Amos, events manager at The Old Manor House Hotel, appreciates people still celebrate the romantic day at the venue.

“A nice meal on Valentine’s Day is what is traditionally expected from loved ones, so it is nice to see it continued today. We increase our staff to ensure that the customers feel well treated, which completes the whole Valentine’s Day experience.”

Despite Valentine’s Day being a busy time, it gives retailers the chance to enjoy what they do best. Wendy Day of Church’s and Polka Dot explains: “I enjoy serving and interacting with the customers, helping the chaps out and providing them with their gifts and cards.”

Whether you are going all out or making an understated gesture, Keynsham provides a variety of specialist shops. From the cards to the flowers, from jewellery to nail treatments, and even the butchers for that breakfast-in-bed treat, you have no excuse not to surprise your Valentine this year.
