The BFA have been tirelessly spearheading Brexit campaigning within our industry for the voice of florists throughout the UK heard.
They have done this in a number of ways, with calls to government being top of list. It's now clear that the BFA have been campaigning so hard for the rights of florists and for our industries point of view to be fully appreciated in negociations that we've attracted National press coverage.
Brian Wills-Pope stated "Whilst this article paints a very negative picture for florists post Brexit, it does reflect the sorts of challenges we as an association have put into our statement to government, having throughly researched the situatuion. the impact that Brexit could have without our lobbing" He goes onto say, the article is very right to say "Whilst floristry is a big industry it is made up of many small retailers, we have to stick together and we at the BFA are making sure that the voice of the florist and the industry as a whole is heard''.
"It's wonderful that national press has picked up and printed that we're exceptionally savvy when it comes to action plans and briefings"Association Manager Tracy Tomlinson said, she continued "However, we won't rest on our laurels and will continue to ramp up the pressure on government. We care too much about our industry for politicians not to take our concerns seriously."
This represents one of many articles published following the campaigning carried out by the BFA and British florists following the requests and encouragement sent to them via regular updates and e-shots etc.
In early May 2018 we at the BFA created a press statement.
This press statement was sent to many journalists and media outlets. As well as contacting the press directly we used the opportuinty of sharing florists concerns in a press release at The RHS Chelsea Flower show. We need Florist's voices to be heard on the subject of Brexit.
In conjunction with this we urged florist members to contact their own local press, again to make the process simple for florists we gave them a template to adjust to suit thier business. Many local stories were written as a result of this.
