“We have had support from all the local businesses, from the butchers to the Co-op.
“We had a lot of people walk and I think I waxing every 20 mins.
“It was a great success.”
Residents flocked in to have a look at the new salon and all the services it offered whilst they were served non alcoholic champagne and cakes.
