Hmm the last testament.
But now he’s history!
Having sold his share of the Practice to Renee as mentioned above, and done a few years of occasional days he left the practice for good at the end of 2016. He observes;
“ It has been a wonderful forty six years. Ups and downs, stock market crash, global financial crises and the eternal hassles of tenancies.
During that time I have had wonderful staff, superior Optometrists to work with, among them two fine partners. The first, Bob Cocks when I joined Cocks and Newall, and then his successor the inimitable Peter Grimmer. I have been very fortunate.
I am left however with the greatest satisfaction of all, the memory of the hundreds of neat people who have “sat in my chair” over those years.
I was blessed to get to know many of you as time passed, and grow up and older with so many of you, your parents, your children.
Thank you and good fortune to all of you. You are the stuff of my memories.
However your needs probably persist, and it is with absolute confidence and not a little pride that I leave you to the ministrations of Peter, Renee, Shannon and their great staff. They all continue to improve the standard of care and attention that attracted me to this Practice those years ago.”
