Goodbye Cathy! Good luck!

Posted on

This month we have said goodbye to one of our longest serving staff members, Cathy. 


After many years helping us & our lovely customers she has decided to try her hand at something new closer to home.



Many of you will miss seeing her at Kidlington Market where you'd find her on a Friday and sometimes a Saturday. 


She has seen the nursery grow and change over her years & has been with us through good times as well as some bad times so we are forever grateful for all of her hard work & support. 

All of our Bunkers Hill team will miss Cathy and are already strange not having her pottering around the nursery.


We all want to wish Cathy all the best for her future adventures


Andrew, Liz, Lucy, Simon & The Bunkers Hill team
