My name is Lisa Ball – I’m 38 and live with my husband and 3 children in Presteigne (Powys) and I am the Regional Property Manager for Pillow for the Welsh Marches region – covering Powys, Herefordshire and surrounding areas. I grew up in Herefordshire and although I’ve been lucky enough to work throughout the UK and various places overseas – I’ve always been drawn back to this area. For me – there is nowhere else that compares. I love the fact we are surrounded by some of the most breath-taking scenery, ubiquitous black and white villages, warm and welcoming country pubs with roaring open fires and an array of local cuisine. We have a wealth of history surrounding us including iron forts, churches, cathedrals and of course the Mappa Mundi. Its also the local people that make this area what it is and I feel honoured to have been given the opportunity to help support the local area and showcase all it has to offer.
My family and I like to make the most of our surroundings and enjoy walking, eating out, visiting local attractions and festivals such as the Three Choirs Festival, The Royal Welsh Show, Local Food and Flying festivals, music events and vintage car rallies.
I have spent the whole of my working life working in Customer Service roles – mainly within the Hospitality and Tourism industries meaning I can offer a wide array of skills, knowledge and experience to both owners and guests.
