ALL eyes were on local young business entrepreneur Jamie Murray Wells when he paid a visit to Westonbirt School.

Mr Murray Wells, who runs Glasses Direct, delivered a lecture at the school to all girls from Years 10-13.

The local businessman, who runs his operation from Charlton near Malmesbury, told the girls how he set up Glasses Direct while still at University, despite pressure from leading high street retailers who tried to stop him.

Many of the girls are studying business and economics or take part in 'Young Enterprise'.
