An insight into our Receptionist, Sandra
Originally, I’m from a small seaside town in North Ayrshire called Saltcoats. I’ve been living in Wales with my husband since 2006, after he was promoted within the RAF and posted to St Athan. I really like living in Barry, it’s quite similar to Saltcoats. Plus, I really like having the beach and the countryside in easy reach. Although, I do miss Scotland a lot, my three sisters and their families are still in Scotland, but I visit when I can.
Most mornings I like to go for a fast walk for about an hour, before having a shower and taking my 11-year-old chocolate lab out for a walk. He’s quite old now, so our walks are more ‘plods’ than the faster walks like when he was younger, then I go home for lunch and to get ready for work. After work, I go home quickly before picking up my daughter from work, we’ll have tea and then go out for another walk with my dog for half hour or so.
I like that the people such a diverse bunch but they are all nice and friendly! I really enjoy the freedom of only working in the afternoon, plus it’s a great bonus getting to meet so many people and having a chat and a laugh!
I was looking for a change after two years of working as a vet receptionist, something with slightly shorter days and that left my weekends free. So when I saw the the vacancy, I decided to apply and now I’ve been working here since August.
I was working as a receptionist/administrator for a vets.
My last job was mostly face to face with the public, whilst having the added bonus of having lots of furbies to cuddle!

It’s really nice to work for a family business where you really feel part of the team rather than just for another corporation.
I really like going out for long walks, I enjoy walking alone but also with my husband and the dog.
I would love to live on a little small holding and open some rescue Kennels!
It can be really interesting and busy, and you get to meet a wide range of people.
