Leanne. I work part time at our Golborne office and like the community atmosphere Golborne has to offer. I have been with Faircloughs for 3 years but I have 8 years’ experience working in a solicitors office. I enjoy being front of house, meeting new people and being their first point of contact.


I have two children aged 12 and 9. We enjoy family walks to local nature spots and playing a range of board games. I am also teaching them both to cook hearty family meals.


I look forward to meeting some new friendly faces from Golborne and surrounding areas and hope we can help you successfully claim the compensation you are entitled to.

Eileen has worked in the UK and overseas. During this time she has worked in finance, sales and education. The thread which runs through all her previous positions is, the customer comes first.


Upon completion of her education she took up a position with the Nat West Bank. She remained with this company until 1997 at which time she left England for New Zealand then some years later Australia. Eventually, Eileen took up a position with the University of Queensland Business School. This provided an opportunity for further study and she completed her degree in Business in 2014.


After 40 years of working with and for the general public Eileen is very aware that there is a need to listen to what the client’s wants and needs are rather than making assumptions. Having bought, sold and packed up an entire house on more than one occasion she appreciates the stresses and strains a move may cause a family/relationship. With this in mind she regards it as part of her job to do everything she can to ease any problems.


Eileen has always engaged with the community in which she lives. She has two daughters. When they were young she took up the role of Guide Leader for a pack of Rainbows and has been a regular member of the PTA in their schools.
