Westover Vets Small Animal Ground Breaking Ceremony

Groundbreaking ceremony

Westover Vets in North Walsham marked the beginning of the construction of their state of the art Veterinary Surgery with a ground breaking ceremony this week. Staff from the surgery were joined on site by the local Reverend Rachael Dines who performed a blessing before the building work commenced.

The plot on the Norwich Road in North Walsham was ear marked for economic development by North Norfolk District Council and Westover Vets are very proud and excited to be able to continue their expansion on the site. The practice is one of the oldest in the country and has been providing veterinary care in North Walsham for 130 years. It has a rich history in developing students from the area and providing opportunities within the veterinary profession. Moving into a new building will further increase the opportunities the practice can provide. The current building, only 300 metres from the new site was purpose built at the time, but the practice has continued to grow and is now ready for its new home.

The surgery is designed by ACD in Newmarket, the team that have built Super Vet Noel Fitzpatrick’s surgery.  It will provide top level veterinary facilities with easy access being adjacent to North Walsham station on the main bus routes and with ample parking. Director Toby Morrell said ‘Ultimately, we want the building to match the already fantastic team that we have working at the practice and to make sure that the friendly caring service remains at the forefront of what we do.’ The facility will be a fantastic addition to the town and should be ready by spring 2020.
