Despite reading London killings 2019 – latest news on knife crime, attacks and statistics we decide to bring joy to the journey of life using flowers!

Beloved Flower Lover,

How else can we serve you we said to ourselves as we have been so busy designing with funeral flowers, yes, London is going through lots of stabbings.  LONDON’S knife crime epidemic has reached an unprecedented level and there have been 90 deaths in the capital since the start of 2019. We are delivering flowers to the saddest situations!

As we create designs and prepare our minds for another families sadness we know that we must keep ourselves upbeat and bright so that we bring the very best of ourselves to the situation.We have learnt more and more about what is causing this. The Sun Newspaper tells us that….

One of the reasons why violence in the capital has spread is because of the brutal “county lines trade” where urban dealers force children and other vulnerable people to take drugs to customers in more rural areas.

The National Crime Agency estimate there are more than 1,000 “county lines” in operation – a 40 per cent rise in just one year – raking in an estimated £1.8billion annual profit.

Each county lines route is making as much as £5,000 a day – £7million between them all.

The county lines gangs regularly entice boys, largely from broken homes, into a life of crime with promises of money, kudos and a sense of belonging often lacking in their troubled home lives.

In London itself, gang warfare is increasingly being driven by a ruthless battle to control the drugs market in a move away from “postcode wars”.

Middle class cocaine users have come under fire for helping to fuel this increasingly violent battle in Lawless London.

The Sun newspaper continues to say that…… campaign groups said cuts to youth facilities has left disillusioned kids with nowhere to hang out, while cuts to front-line policing has seen the number of bobbies on the beat tumble.

Scotland Yard has seen its annual budget slashed by about 20 per cent since 2011, and it has lost 10 per cent of its officers in that time.

Over the last seven years 81 youth clubs and council youth projects have shut while almost £40million have been cut from youth services.

We know that we bring our principles of peace,unity and joy to help solve this problem as its very trey real right now in London.

For  all of you who are reading this from abroad please send the UK thoughts of peace as we need to be reminded that we are more than what we see happening .

Despite delivering flowers for these sad situations we are holding a candle and burn it to remember peace, unit and joy. That is our gift to you.
