Meet The Team

Stella & Lawrence Moran


Lawrence and Stella Moran between them have over 80 years experience in optometry (wow!) yet remain keen to embrace new ideas and techniques.

Lawrence comes from a family in which his father and uncle were both optometrists and he took over the family practice in Manchester soon after qualifying.

This was after he and Stella met where they were both working in Yeovil. Stella had a year or two of working almost literally from one end of the country (Honiton) to the other (Aberdeen), before taking over what is now the New Mills practice.

Away from work we have a grown up family and are proud parents and grandparents. Lawrence likes most sports – participating in running, cycling, skiing to name a few.

Stella is keen on Yoga, craftwork, and dancing.

Aled Brassington


Aled joined the Team in May 2016 as an Optometrist and partner. He's work in Optics for over 10 years firstly as a dispensing assistant and lab technician then qualified from Cardiff University as an Optometrist in 2009. He's originally from Caernarfon in North Wales and outside of work he loves the great outdoors and (unsurprisingly) Rugby.

Hannah Coram

Dispensing Optician

Hannah has been with the practice for 5 years, and qualified as a Dispensing Optician in 2014. She has 2 young children, and when not working enjoys reading, running, painting and horror films. She has a passion for the weird and unusual, and would like to encourage more people to dare to be different with their eyewear.

Mel Redfern

Practice Administrator

Mel joined the practice in February 2015 and is currently studying towards a Level 2 qualification in Business Administration.

She enjoys reading, crochet and has a young son with a passion for sports.
