The Jewish Chronicle - - People -

VET­ERAN FLORIST Brita Wolff is shut­ting up shop to­day af­ter six decades. Mrs Wolff, 72, who runs Gal­ton Flow­ers on Gold­ers Green — the shop founded by her mother Hilde Gal­ton in 1948 — has de­cided to call time on the site and will re­lo­cate to their branch in Brent Cross Shop­ping Cen­tre. She tells Peo­ple: “It is very sad but you can’t go on for­ever.

“Gold­ers Green isn’t what it used to be. It has be­come a very in­ter­est­ing street but is not right for us any­more. I am re­ally happy that we had those years but I think it’s been long enough.” Hilde Gal­ton started the flower em­pire, be­lieved to be the long­est-run­ning flower shop in Gold­ers Green, af­ter the fam­ily moved to Lon­don be­fore the war in 1939. She pre­vi­ously ran a flower shop in Berlin, which was smashed on Kristall­nacht.
