A Village Institution to Close

hair2000Little RoseHAIR 2000 will close permanently on 19th February after many years of dedicated service to our community.  But all is not lost:  Jo will be cutting men’s hair at The Little Rose on alternate Wednesday mornings, starting on 24th February between 9,30 am and 12.30 pm .  This will be a ‘drop in’ service rather than by appointment, and dry cuts only.
