Local Business

Since 1893, H.Parsons has supported local business through its buy local strategy. 


Working with these amazing businesses means the families that we serve also benefit. The businesses are varied and include florists, graphic designers, sign writers, manufacturers, caterers and builders to name a few. You can tell us more about your community initiative by emailing us at 


Poppy's of Thirroul

We’ve being working with Poppy’s of Thirroul for over ten years to ensure our families receive beautiful casket covers and flowers for their services. Owner Kelly Jones and loyal companion Sasha her pet dog, (see photo) are northern suburbs locals and both love the shop and the many customers that come in each day.  While Kelly and her team are busy making gorgeous floral arrangements, Sasha likes to chill in the shop and keep the staff and customers company.

Great customer service and providing a quality product is what Poppy’s is all about and at H.Parsons we see this continually being delivered.  Quite a few of Poppy’s arrangements make their way to the Flower Reach Project, which sees H.Parsons donating left over floral arrangements, with permission from families, to floristry students at TAFE Shellharbour.

The Black Chapel


We had the pleasure of working with a few of the Illawarra’s creatives recently and held a photo shoot on location at the stunning Black Chapel in Austinmer.  Apple Tree Catering partners with H.Parsons to supply our catering for memorial services.  The release of their new menus called for some fabulous images and at a beautiful location and the Black Chapel certainly delivered. They called us in for assistance with this shoot, as they not only cater for funerals they cater for weddings, corporates, dinner parties and gatherings. 

We couldn’t have chosen a better location for this wedding shoot.  Black Chapel generously allowed us run of the place to showcase Apple Tree Catering’s amazing array of fresh produce which is sourced locally.  Illawarra based photographers Teel Studios were behind the camera for this shoot and captured both location and talent at their best.
