Look out for our change of name soon!

In the next month or so the practice will be painted in new colours and we will become “Trotman Opticians”. As Martin has retired from the business and Fiona’s name has changed we thought it was time for a new look.
Everything else is staying the same, including our lovely staff and our excellent level of service. A link to our new website will be available shortly.
