The Greenock store has held a special awards ceremony in recognition of its committed, long-serving members of staff.

Recognising the store’s dedicated staff

Eight members of the team at Specsavers in Greenock were awarded certificates and badges for racking up a collective 90 years of service between them.

Admin manager Jacqui Murdoch celebrates almost 20 years at the store this year while four other members of staff will clock up more than ten years of service each and a further three will mark five years.

An enthusiastic and knowledgeable team
