Heather is the founder of Wiggly’s and loves living and working on the farm. Phil (her husband) runs the farm, and she heads up Wiggly Wigglers. She is a Nuffield Scholar, and loves working with people who enjoy their work, and contribute to the business. She loves the variety and creativity of the business, and most of all she loves chocolate. She has a chocolate Labrador, a chocolate cat, a chocolate car and a chocolate picnic set…
She deals with trade enquirees, PR, and lots more. She loves to travel, - all trips considered :0)
San is one of the directors at Wiggly Wigglers, and runs Blakemere on a day to day basis. Her background is in the corporate world but she didn’t like all the rules :0), and now she loves the variety of being part of a small business. She says she can be talking about ants in a wormery, sorting wedding flowers, sourcing new products, then mopping the floor! (I’m not convinced this happens often :-)
She reckons she is not photogenic and loves nothing better than a trip off, and is a City of Hereford Rotarian, seriously helping to lower the average age of the Club…
Rach heads up Wiggly Operations and is a Director in the company. She has enjoyed being part of Wigglys from the beginning and loves the fact that so many of the products are local.
Her favourite part of her work is getting things right for the customer (just the ticket there Rach :0)
Rach would however like to hibernate in winter with the hedgehogs as she is a sun lover! She loves her Labrador dog as she does everything Rach asks, even if it is wrong – in return for a little extra food :0)
Heidi heads up our customer care team. She really enjoys having a chat with the customers, helping them out and sorting out any problems that they might have (usually relating to birds, worms and deliveries, but not always :0) In a previous life she has been an electrical engineer, ironing lady, and teaching assistant. At Wiggly Wigglers she has done and can do a bit of everything. She is experienced in the warehouse and the floristry too.
At home Heidi is a mum of two teenagers and a jack russell called Alfie. She loves a cuppa, chocolate and sunny days at the seaside.
Tanya is our Mistress of Money and does her very best to help customers with queries or placing orders. She is most happy to chat about garden birds (she likes starlings best). She also enjoys a fully reconciled bank statement and… biscuits.
She would like it to be known that she made *everyone tea on 24th June 2013 (*there was only one other person in the office at that time) and she wants to be good at gardening, - but has often failed at this.
Current pet count = 9. One dog, two cats, one hamster, two rabbits and three goldfish.
