Heidi Sheaver has been the store manager at Specsavers in Welwyn Garden City for the last decade, under the directorship of Andrew Durrant and Thomas Armstrong, the stores owners.

Heidi, first joined Specsavers as an optical assistant when the Howardsgate store opened in 1998 and has proven herself to be one of the store’s shining stars.

A word from the owner

Thomas Armstrong, the store’s owner, said: ‘Heidi has really flourished here at Specsavers and an integral member of our team.

‘She’s a staff and customer favourite, and has a wealth of experience in her role as store manager. We don’t know what we’d do without her!’

A word from Heidi

Heidi said: ‘Working in optics is such an interesting and fulfilling job – I can’t believe that it has almost been two decades since my journey began.

‘I’ve seen young patients grow up and they’re now bringing their children in for glasses – that’s really specials.’
