Honorary Fellowship for Simon
On 15th January 2015 the British Florist Association (BFA) announced that The Institute of Professional Florists (IoPF) was formally launched at the House of Commons. Hosted by Graham Brady MP (Chairman of the 1922 Committee), Brian Wills-Pope (BFA Chairman) and Sandie Griffith (BFA Vice-Chairman and Chairman of the IoPF), this wonderful opportunity to promote training, education and professionalism within the florist industry was attended by key industry figures, invited members and guests, as well as the BFA board of directors.
During the event, Simon received his Honorary Fellowship for his achievement and dedication to floristry spanning many years. Later in the day, floral displays were presented at the Prime Ministers residence at 10 Downing Street.
