Meet the Starlings of Swaffham Team

Kim Starling

Director Kim is the daughter of Basil & Dorothy, growing up in Norfolk surrounded by flowers and fruit! She learnt the roots of the business from a young age, and proudly runs Starlings with the same ethics and family values today. She is especially passionate about working with many local suppliers and sourcing the finest products, as her father always said – “Buy the best and forget the rest”

Dorothy Starling

With over 50 years in the industry, Dorothy is a fantastic florist and well-known character in Swaffham. Semi-retired now, Dorothy is still Queen of the fruit baskets and her window displays are always talk of the town!


The lovely Jola joined Starlings of Swaffham back in 2004. Her natural artistic flair and experience working in flower shops in Poland has brought a European and very natural feel to many of our floral designs, especially our simply wrapped bouquets.


Dee joined our team in March 2022 and has been a florist for over 30 years . The picture shows Dee with some flowers she made for our late Queen Elizabeth ll on her last official birthday . Since joining us she has done two demonstrations , the last one was for Alzheimer's Society and we raised over £2,000 ! Dee’s experience has meant we can expand and develop our events and wedding side of the business . so watch this space !
