The 48-year-old from Flax Bourton, who also works part-time for Watkins and Tasker Vets in Yatton, Nailsea and Portishead, has set up her own business in the hope of spending more time with family and doing the things she loves.

She has also been in touch with other local electricians in the hope of gaining more on-the-job experience.

She said: “I was lucky to get in touch with Emelia Flloyd, a Cheddar electrician, and I have been working with her every Monday since February.

“She is amazingly skilled and has the respect of her male counter parts and also all the other tradesmen she works alongside, so although I would say it is a male dominated industry, there is a lot of respect for women who do this sort of work and do it well.

“I recently completed my to do list by buying myself a pony, a life-long dream, and I hope that Lady P will allow me to cut my hours at the vets to give me more time to spend with him and also help my mum out.”
