Braintree Team

Fay Brighton (Manager)

I started my travel role with the Society as a Trainee Consultant and have worked my way up through the years to a management role. In 2010 I took a 4 month trip around South East Asia which has helped me specialise in this area in my job.

I am very passionate about travel and have been fortunate enough to travel to many destinations both through work and personally. Other than loving Asia, I also enjoy travelling to the Caribbean and have visited many of the different islands.

I love meeting new people and finding clients their perfect holiday is definitely one of the best parts of the job for me.

Helen Meacher (Senior Travel Consultant)

I have been working as a Travel Consultant for the past 10 years and have been with Chelmsford Star for the last 9. I am very passionate about finding my clients the prefect holiday to suit all their requirements. I have a particular interest in tailor making trips around the USA and also love to arrange Escorted Tours with Travelsphere as I am one of their Acredited Agents after a recent trip with them to Sicily. My favourite holiday destinations are Sardinia and the South of France along with Rome being my top European city break location.

Donna Hyde (Senior Consultant)

I have worked for the society since 1987 and have been part of travel since 1990/91. I specialise in the accounts and have travel experience in Rhodes, Corfu, Florida, Bahamas, Barbados, Belgium, Paris and Menorca

Susie Hyett (Travel Consultant)

I have been in travel for over 35 years and started as an Administration Assistant, then progressed up the ladder to the role of Travel Consultant.

My passion is the Far East and Africa having been brought up in Singapore and have been lucky to go on several Safaris to South Africa and Kenya.

I absolutely love meeting people and pride myself on giving good customer service and finding them, in some cases, the holiday of a lifetime. The majority of my clients have moved with me wherever I have worked in the travel industry.

I have recently returned to the Society.

Peter Mitchell (Bureau Consultant)

I’m a bit of a newbie to the world of travel having worked here for a year, however I come from a customer service background and have been selling currency for the past three years, I love hearing about my customers travel stories and tips, as I enjoy travelling in my spare time too. I am passionate about Italian food and culture as I have previously lived in Milan.
