Judith Jones

Accounts Manager

I started working part time at Arrowfield in 1997 and during my time I have seen many changes, I now work full time as the accounts manager. When I left school I went to work in a local bank, a job to which I returned when my two children were at secondary school.

Living in a rural area it is impossible not to be involved in the countryside and working at Arrowfield gives me great satisfaction and its a job I really enjoy. I love meeting people and at Arrowfield we work as a team, our aim is to provide a warm friendly atmosphere for our Clients.

Outside work, I enjoy cooking and it has become a tradition for me to bake a cake on staff birthdays. I also enjoy spending time with my family; my three grandchildren give me enormous pleasure, and going away with friends.

I’ve worked at Arrowfield, as a part-time receptionist, mainly evenings and Saturday mornings since 2002. I really enjoy my work, meeting people and their pets and the farmers on the large animal side of the practice.

Living locally, with my husband, Martin we farm sheep, pigs and suckler cows. We have a few chickens one of whom each year manages to ‘steal’ a nest and hatch a brood.

We’ve four adult children and grandchildren, so there’s never a dull moment at home either.

Jeanette Williams

Presteigne Receptionist

I work at the Presteigne branch surgery covering reception for the morning surgeries. Having spent many years living and working in London, I returned to the area in 2005, not quite able to shake off my love of all things countryside and in particular mid Wales. I now enjoy walking in the woods and up hills with the family's springer spaniel Ben, relocating to Hay Book Festival for a week every May time and travelling to Cardiff to support the Welsh rugby team whenever I can.

 

 

Jayne Hughes

I’ve been working at the Presteigne branch of the vets since 2012 as the evening/Saturday receptionist and love meeting local customers and their pets.  It was a childhood dream to work with animals and I got there eventually!  I have several pets of my own – a golden retriever called Sasha, two cats Maisy and Toby and a cockerel named Eric and his four little bantams.  I have lived in Presteigne for 23 years with my husband and three children and also work in one of the local schools.
