Lenzie Galafest Sponsor Profile – Browns Opticians

How long has your business been established in Lenzie?

We are a relatively new business/service in Lenzie as are only approaching our 2nd birthday. We live locally, and thoroughly enjoy being part of a wonderful community and to be able to provide eyecare services  is a bonus.

And what do you do?

At Browns Opticians, we are a family run optical practice with a strong bias on clinical excellence.  We provide eyecare services including eye tests, contact lenses, visual stress assessment, home visits and much more. Both my wife and myself are qualified independent prescribers meaning we can treat a range of eye conditions which may otherwise require a GP or hospital appointment.

We are passionate about improving the eye health of our patients, and ensure everyone receives the highest level of care with a tailored comprehensive eye test, and can provide outstanding eyewear if necessary.

What’s your experience of the Lenzie gala day?

Its a wonderful day out for the whole of the community.  Its always lovely to see people of all ages coming together and enjoying themselves. The addition of sunshine always adds to the day too.  Its a day to showcase what is great about Lenzie and creates a tremendous community environment.

Last year….

Sadly I was working last year so I missed it, but my 3 daughters and wife went along. My youngest is part of Lenzie Woodhead gymnastic club and always enjoys taking part in the annual displays at the gala.  We are all looking forward to spending the afternoon there this year.

Why did you choose to offer your support to LCC to bring the GALA day to life?

I feel its always important to support your local community and its good to know the people behind the businesses. The gala day is an opportunity to meet different people from across our community, and enable us to help support local people and not larger corporations.

What would you like to see next year?

Sunshine and no rain!

What would you say to anyone who is thinking of becoming a Friend of Lenzie GalaFest?

Don’t think about it…get involved and do it. Its a fantastic opportunity to get to know people and businesses in our community.  Theres so much to be gained and nothing to lose.  Lenzie’s a small town with a big heart and we’re proud to be part of it.
