Who We Are

Simon Budd
Simon Budd

I studied optometry at Bradford University and this is where Louise & I met. I qualified as an optometrist in 1989 and worked in a number of practices in the Midlands and South Cumbria before we bought the practice in 2006. In my spare time, I enjoy a challenge & participate in the Great North Swim with our son Ritchie & my brother Adrian. I have also undertaken a couple of triathlons and recently ran the Cardiff Half Marathon – who said anything about a mid-life crisis?!

Louise Budd

Having our own practice gives us time to concentrate on our patients specific requirements and also provide something a bit different. I particularly enjoy providing coloured overlays & colorimetry to help patients with dyslexia and visual stress.

Outside of work, life tends to involve chasing around our 3 children, developing our garden & indulging my passion for cooking.

Linda Baverstock

Working part-time I now have more opportunities for fell & coastal walking, cycling & other activities.

But optics remains my first love and I am delighted that Simon, Louise & the team maintain the ethos of the practice – to allow time to deliver the best eyecare to every patient and, when needed, the best spectacle or contact lens solution for their individual lifestyle.

Keith Coxhill

I have been qualified as a dispensing optician for 30 years and I am also a supervisor for students like Sian who are training as dispensing opticians.

I like to think I give Simon something to aspire to with his sporting challenges! I coach football for Bare Rangers youth football team, playing tennis/badminton and recently completed a coast to coast ‘Way of the Roses’ cycling charity event.

Sian Irvine

I am the newest member of the team, joining in 2012 as a receptionist having had a gap year in Austria. I am now training as a dispensing optician, studying for my degree whilst working. This gives me less time than I would like to enjoy playing ladies football and netball!

Heather Hartley

I have worked in the practice as optical receptionist since 1997. I am married to Alan and we have 5 grandchildren. When not at work, we enjoy going away to France & Portugal or to our static caravan. We also get very involved organising quiz and race nights.

Bridget Cottam

I joined the practice in 2006 and I am responsible for frame and lens ordering and helping patients with frame selection. A couple of years ago I bought a house with my partner, which we are busy working on. In my spare time I enjoy baking and am renowned for my fantastic cake designs and face painting!


Simon Budd
Andrea Malkin

I have worked in the practice since 2007 and work as an optical receptionist. I have one son, Torin, who is a table tennis demon! and 2 dogs, Pasha & Freda. When not at work, I enjoy walking my dogs, making felt and generally being creative.
