Friday 29th September saw us celebrate our 2nd birthday with an instore open day! With weeks of planning, organising and arranging going into the event it certainly paid off when so many of you came in to see us on the day. We had, Duncan, a representative from one of our favourite frame suppliers ‘The Eyewear Company’ on hand to chat to those attending about the fabulous frames he had brought to showcase. As well as displaying over 100 of Duncan’s frames in the shop on the day; he also came armed with boxes and boxes of more frames for everyone to browse and try on too

Local café ‘No 7’ baked us an (enormous) Victoria sponge cake! We also had cupcakes, biscuits, and prosecco – or orange juice – on offer all throughout the day. It was great to see everyone who came in to see us and even better to you all smiling with a slice of cake and a celebratory drink in hand!

Nicola and Lauren were non-stop busy all day helping you choose frames and then sorting the perfect lenses for your new spectacles. Even better, everyone who came made the most of our 20% discount and even got a free Hoya lens goody bag with every purchase of Hoya lenses!

We had a double clinic running so both Olly and Peter were fully booked seeing patients for eye tests all day before handing them over to Nicola and Lauren into the (organised) chaos which was unfolding on the shop floor. Simon and Ann were endlessly busy manning the phones and keeping the clinics running smoothly.  Thanks to a massive team effort the whole event ran smoothly and without problem!

We didn’t stop all day with it being our busiest day in practice to date and we absolutely loved it! We can’t thank those who came enough for your ongoing support and we hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did… We better get started on planning for next year’s event now!
