Dear Spurtle,

Very very upset at the closure of Narcissus.  A great disaster personally as well as for the local (and greater) community.  One of the retailers who brightened up Broughton St visually … plus added variety amongst the excess of food-related outlets.

Feel incredibly sad for the staff, particularly Dagmar who seems to have been there forever. I just hope the business can be rescued and re-incarnated. Narcissus was the best florist in Edinburgh, in my opinion.

I guess Spurtle will have to find a new accommodation address too … ?

Miss H.F. Goodson

Dear Miss Goodson,

We share your sense of loss. And, yes, we are arranging a new postal address on Broughton Street. Details in Issue 328 (May).
