"I started with Leightons in October 2014, and thoroughly enjoy my job. In Cirencester, the team and customers have been so friendly and welcoming. I particularly value the investment in OCT in our Ultimate Eye Exam, as it means we can offer our customers very latest and best eye care services. In my spare time I enjoy going to the gym, running and walking my Bassett Hound, Wilson."

Amanda Lee

Optical Assistant

"I first starting working at the Cirencester store on 5th April 1990, back when it was run by Peter Hicks. I continued when Leightons took over in 1995, and the rest, as they say, is history. We have a lovely relationship with our customers as many have been coming to us for a long time. It doesn't take us long to get to know our new customers too. I love people and am keen to make their every visit an enjoyable and memorable one. My outside interests are Salsa and Latin line dancing and visiting historical places. I also spend my day off helping Class 5 at Powell's Primary School."

Bonnie Adams

Optical Assistant

"Leightons always seems to have been part of my life - I came here as a customer from a young age and I even did my work experience here in 1994 under the watchful eye of Amanda Lee! I continued as a regular customer, and in May 2002 started working for Leightons when Amanda convinced me to join. I enjoy spending my spare time with my full-of-life Springer Spaniels, and sometimes even my husband."

I have been an extremely satisfied customer for a number of years and all the staff of your Cirencester branch have been a great help to me and my family while always being cheerful and professional. A huge thank you to them all.
