I also teach sailing and have been a RYA qualified sailing instructor for over 21 years, and teach sailing every Friday evening from April to July at Starcross Yacht Club.. We have a great junior section at Starcross Sailing Club and regularly get well over 60 children out on the water.

Any other free time revolves around my family, and my cat and dog, singing in a local choir, playing the flute and recorder in a small instrumental group, swimming, sailing, walking and enjoying
Liz Watkins BVSc MRCVS
Liz is a very experienced general practitioner small animal vet. She is reluctant to make public just how long ago she qualified! Having built up her North Somerset practice from a one-vet clinic in 1990 to a 9 vet, 3 site practice in 2018, she decided to retire from the business for a quieter life, but did not feel quite ready to be fully retired. Instead she moved to Devon and sought out a practice with similar ethos and values to her own, where she could work part time, and as a result joined Bay Vets. Outside work, her passion, shared with husband Bill, is horses, and she owns a beautiful Andalusian dressage horse as well as two cats, both of which started life as ‘waifs and strays’ needing a home. Her veterinary interests are broad, and include ophthalmology, general surgery and rabbit medicine. “The way she works is driven by two main factors: to offer the least stressful pathway consistent with best outcome for each patient, and also to communicate fully with owners so that they are actively involved in all decisions regarding the care of their pet”
