Meet The Team
We are a small friendly team based in the Ribble Valley in Lancashire. We all have our own area of expertise and when we put them all together we have a great combination of skills. The best thing for us is knowing that our customers love to come to our little shop and browse around our super treats & great gift ideas.Read about us
Founder & owner
Valley Living is Aud’s business, she is our boss but she is very friendly and not at all bossy! :) Auds spends lots of time hunting, looking and tracking down different, pretty and thoughtful products for the shop so that we always have something new to show you, and not just the usual gifts that you find on the high street. She is also a qualified chef and was a hospitality lecturer for many years too so naturally, good customer service is one of her top priorities. Auds loves her shop and struggles to peel herself away from it, but when she manages it you would either find her enjoying her garden, flicking through recipe books or bobbing around on a boat with her family off the west coast of Scotland.
Digital Marketing Manager
Kelsey is our Super Star at all things ‘digital’ here at Valley Living, she is in charge of our website and all our social media communications. If you pop into our shop you will often find her helping our customers too but most of her time is spent keeping our online customers happy and generally doing an amazing job of keeping all things ‘technical’ on track. Kelsey is a ‘party girl’ and loves a festival and going out with her friends. She really enjoys travelling, meeting people and discovering new places and cultures whenever she gets the opportunity.
Assistant Buyer & Sales Executive
Lisa is our merchandising queen! She is the bee's knees at making our fabulous products look amazing in the shop. Lisa has won national awards for her floristry displays and has a very creative flair for arranging flowers beautifully. She enjoys a good trade fair and finding coordinating products that sit together perfectly. In her spare time, Willow, her friendly border collie, likes to drag Lisa to the beach for long walks and the occasional ice cream.
Cindy keeps us all organised and enjoys looking after & helping all our customers that pop into the shop. Luckily for us, she actually enjoys keeping the shop all clean, tidy and 'ship shape'! Cindy drinks copious amounts of green tea and is definitely in charge of the biscuit tin. When she is not working she will be found trotting 'over hill and down dale' here in the picturesque Ribble Valley. She loves walking, she walks everywhere. She also loves to buy shoes and most of all, spending time with her grandchild.
