9 May 2019 - 50 Not Out!

Earlier this year Edmonds & Slatter Opticians had a double reason to celebrate, Assistant Manager Carol Barker and Laboratory Administrator Lynn Shalvey both celebrated a combined 50 years’ service, 25 years each!

Carol has played a pivotal role at the Glenfield practice having started as a receptionist there back in 1993 and Lynn has remained a constant figure of order and efficiency in the spectacle glazing laboratory situated at the Blaby practice.

Tim Cole, Dispensing Optician and partner at the Leicestershire Independent Opticians said: ‘”Carol is such a familiar face at the Glenfield practice and around the village, people are always asking after her. Her dedication and willingness to go beyond the call of duty are why Edmonds and Slatter have such a good reputation for customer service’ Tim went on to say ‘Carol’s efforts are much appreciated by patients and colleagues alike’

Tim continued "I am proud that so many staff members who joined in the early days are still with us. Our reputation is thanks to the efforts of our staff. We take great pride in our professionalism, aiming to be the best in our field rather than the biggest. Lynn is another ideal example of the staff we have - loyal, conscientious and hard working. Her efforts make a tremendous difference to the success of our business"

As a gesture of gratitude for their longstanding and impeccable service Carol and Lynn were given flowers, jewellery and gifted holidays abroad from the partners at Edmonds & Slatter. Both ladies are in good company as more than half of the current staff at the opticians have been working there for over 10 years!

Carol Lynn 25th
