A long-serving podiatrist has the world at his feet as he retires after 34 years.

John Nicolle is handing over The Holmdale Chiropody and Podiatry Surgery, which he has run since he was 27 years old, to Sidmothian Antony Martin.

After moving to the town in 1981, Mr Nicolle soon set up his own practice and settled into family life, raising his three sons with his wife, Jackie.

Mr Nicolle said: “I have always tried to be a part of Sidmouth; I was a member of the sailing club and an ex-chairman of the Round Table.

“I think it is important if you work in the town to be a part of the town. It has been a privilege to live and work in the town.”

The 61-year-old said he will be enjoying gardening, cycling and reducing his handicap now he has more time.

Mr Martin was born in Sidmouth before attending The King’s School.

He became an associate at the practice last year, after completing his degree in podiatric medicine at Plymouth University.

Mr Nicolle said: “I am delighted to be handing the surgery over to a local person who understands the town.

“I know Antony will continue to provide the friendly and professional service which we have always aimed for at the The Holmdale Surgery.

“It has been a real pleasure working here and I appreciate the support from all of my patients.”
