Manager at Coventry vets celebrated 40th anniversary of job

THE PRACTICE manager at Broad Lane Vets has celebrated her 40th anniversary working at the practice.

The team at the practice marked the occasion with a party for Lisa Madden, with her previous bosses Roy and Roger hands.

The party had a specially designed cake, flowers and the award if a long-service medal.

Lisa first went to the practice as part of her Duke of Edinburgh Award while still at school.

She continued volunteering at Broad Lane until she was old enough to gain a place as a Student Veterinary Nurse.

Then after qualifying as an RVN, she worked her way up to become head veterinary nurse, and later practice manager.

Elly said: “Lisa began her career here in 1984 when it was a traditional mixed practice, often assisting the vets on farm visits before rushing back to help with the small animal evening surgery, and attending overnight emergencies as needed.

“The practice has changed hugely over the years, but Lisa remains an absolute lynchpin here.”
