Holly Blythe


Holly has worked at Blythe Financial for nearly 10 years now and enjoys coming to work every day, announcing her arrival to the whole of the street. Holly has developed her skills in customer service and post duties and is now so keen to look after our clients she insists on attending meetings in the boardroom. If she is left outside by mistake we soon know about it as she scratches the door and barks to be let in!

Cookie Blythe


Cookie always has a lot to say for herself and like Holly, likes to announce her arrival each day. So much so that she continues to shout until she has been given one of her favourite treats. I wonder who is training who sometimes! Cookie is always very relaxed whilst at work and every afternoon she has a leisurely snooze in the main office, often snoring loudly and quite oblivious to the fact that she should be working!
