Meet: Sharon Benton

We met with Class of '83 graduate Sharon Benton, to discuss how life has been since graduating. Now a successful business owner, Sharon has combined her expertise in marketing with her love of plants to create plant shop Fancy Plants in Bristol.

Fancy Plants is the brain child of Sharon Benton, BA Hons Communications Studies - class of 1983. 

After a long and successful career in marketing and communications, Sharon decided to start afresh in 2019 and follow her dream of opening a plant shop. Opening Fancy Plants was one of the best decisions Sharon has made, putting to use her business and marketing skills and her love for plants has been the perfect combination for success. 

You can clearly see the attention to detail and passion in her shops in Bristol, better known as 'The Jungle in the City'. Hear all about Sharon's story in the above video and make sure you check out Fancy Plants too.
