The Mayor of Cowbridge joined residents for an Easter party to celebrate the first anniversary of the town’s Specsavers store.
Councillor Terry Williams visited the High Street opticians for a day filled with Easter fun.
He was on hand to draw a raffle of everyone who purchased frames in March, with the lucky winner receiving the cost of their glasses back. A number of vouchers were also placed across Cowbridge, signposting residents to the store to collect a free Easter egg.
Mr Williams was later given the chance to see the store’s state-of-the-art facilities, such as its £40,000 optical coherence tomography (OCT) machine. The OCT machine is a hospital-grade device that develops a 3D scan of a patient’s eye and can improve early detection of conditions such as glaucoma.
The Easter party also marked the one-year anniversary of the store, which was opened by locals Hannah Davies and Adam Thomas with a £300,000 investment. Since then, the store has brought in a new director, Andrew Moss, to support its growth as well as develop community partnerships in the town.
‘Thank you’ to customers
Mr Moss says: ‘As a locally-owned business, engaging with the community is paramount to everything we do, so we’re glad that we were able to have this celebration as a ‘thank you’ to our customers, who have supported us from day one.
‘Everyone really got into the community spirit and we are thankful to Mr Williams for his willingness to join in the fun.’
