ng your Hearing. Leightons, we have always been proud to say, is the best place to talk about hearing.

All the staff were polite and efficient, they were all very helpful. The guy who helped me to choose my spectacles and measure was a great help and made me feel confident that the spectacles would be fine. I had a bad experience at boots some years back as I needed to be confident in your staff and I totally did.
