A TAUNTON hairdresser is closing after more than a third of a century.

Clips, in Roman Road, will shut for the last time at the end of business on Saturday, July 27.

Owner Sandra Martin, who ha run the business in Roman Road for 34 years, said: "We're sorry to be closing and want to let everyone know - we have more than 300 regulars.

"It's not been an easy decision. One thing's for sure though - I'm definitely not retiring."

A total of five members of staff have worked there, while a second Clips hairdresser used to be based in Kingston Road.
