Hitchin Specsavers opticians celebrates its silver anniversary this year, after 25 years of service in the local community.

The birthday party really was great fun for everyone, where each customer was given a silver envelope with a prize, ranging from a bag of sweets to a free pair of designer glasses.

Many customers also took up the offer to bring their specs into the store for free MOTs and minor repairs.

Located on the High Street since 1988, hosted an eighties themed birthday party in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society and a local charity, Reclaim Life. As part of the celebrations staff transformed themselves into eighties icons to pay homage to the year the store first opened.

The Alzheimer’s Society works to improve the quality of life of people affected by dementia in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, helping sufferers, carers and health professionals. Reclaim Life is a local Luton based charity offering free life coaching sessions to individuals who have experienced emotional anxiety.
