A NEW business opened in Taunton last month.

Somerset Hearing, run by Jon Cade, opened on September 14 and offers private hearing care and earwax removal.

The 32-year-old is an audiologist with 10 years of experience working for manufacturers of hearing aids and hearing testing equipment.

He lives in Taunton and grew up on the edge of Exmoor.

"I wanted to bring what I have learnt over the past ten years in the hearing aid industry and deliver an exceptional high level of service that people with hearing loss deserve," said Jon.

"I spent my time implementing the latest hearing aid technology and trained of private nationwide retailers and NHS departments across the UK when I worked for hearing aid manufacturers.

"Seeing how hearing aid technology has improved the lives of millions made me want to provide a service to the highest standard.

"I have long wanted to help make a positive difference to individual people.

"The setting up of Somerset Hearing is my opportunity to achieve this.

"With great excitement I opened the doors of the business and already have been a lot busier than I expected.

"I want people to have peace of mind when coming to see us, to know they will be listened to and looked after.

"My vision is for the business to grow and become an extension of the local community, to become the go-to place for hearing. We are here to help and guide people to the right technology and hearing care for them."
