Two staff members at a town’s vets have recently retired after many years of services between them.

Sue Brandrick and Pat Walker have both recently retired from working for many years at Lime Tree Vets.

Sue, a senior receptionist, started at Lime Trees in April 1969, having a break in-between to have her two children; while Pat, a senior administrator started working for the company in March 1983.

A spokesman for the vets said: “They have gone from three vets at a mixed practice at David Crooks house to a large cutting edge hospital and referral centre at Meir Park, via Bank Street in Cheadle and then Lime Trees Vets, Tean Road which opened in 2000.

Back when Pat and Sue started, it was very different. There was no computers or no mobile phones.

They helped to dispense medication, monitor anaesthetics, help with x-rays – times have changed a lot since then.

There wasn’t even a parvovirus vaccination when Sue started.”

Hywel Parry, director at Lime Trees, added: “Both Sue and Pat have been a huge part of the Lime Trees family for so long.

I am not on my own when I say they will be genuinely missed.

Thank you Pat and Sue and we wish you both a long and happy retirement.”

Lime Trees Veterinary Hospital at Meir Park has been open throughout the pandemic supporting pet owners and referring practices.

Meanwhile, Lime Trees Veterinary Clinic in Cheadle will be re-opening, with limited services, on Tuesday (October 6).
