A HAIR and beauty salon is to close after several members of staff said they no longer wished to work there following lockdown.

The Bathpool Salon is offering hair appointments until the end of July, after which it will then shut permanently.

Owner Lorraine has told clients that many people have re-evaluated their life priorities and plans during lockdown.

On a social media post she said: "As a result, several of our stylists have decided that they do not wish to return to the salon.

"Because of this I have looked at ways to carry on the operation of the salon, but with so few stylists it is impractical for me to continue.

"I have looked into the possibility of handing the salon over to a new owner, but unfortunately if I am not to continue my landlord wishes to redevelop the building.

"Therefore it is with great sadness that the salon will be closing permanently from the end of July."

She added: "I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the girls that have worked at the salon over the last 10 years and all the loyal and supportive clients."
