Howard Heaton… Since starting the business from scratch, Howard has built on his experience at Heatons, learnt a lot more stuff and likes to share his knowledge. A passion for quality wool, sheepskin and leather products, entertaining his customers with his Yorkshire wit, sharing his opinions in the rugby stands (very loudly), his wife’s sticky toffee pudding and of course his family. You won’t find a prouder Yorkshire man.
Joan Heaton… Howards wife and partner. What do they say about behind every good man? Need we say any more, other than what a mean Yorkshire pud she makes and how many hours she finds in a day!
Joe Heaton… The eldest of Howard and Joan’s sons, Joe set up his own branch of the business in 2009. Like his Dad, he is making friends across North Yorkshire’s markets and shows and building up his own good reputation under the Westmorland brand.
Tim Heaton… The youngest and newest member to the family business. Tim has developed the online side of the business and may take to the shows and markets when he gets too old for his rugby and can’t cope with 80 minutes of mud, sweat and hard graft every week!
Dominique Heaton... Tim's wife. Dom comes from a small town in Carmarthenshire and has just as much passion towards rugby as the boys, all be it for Wales, which brings up interesting and heated debates when the Six Nations, World Cup or Lions tours come around. Dom has a digital audience development background, working for Leeds Museums and Galleries for 11 years and brings this experience to the team.
