Tell us a little bit about yourself.

What are your experiences of Marks Gate?

The residents that I have met through my shop are very friendly and loyal, they regularly come back. I have built a customer base over the 9 years since opening. Some of my customers have moved away from Marks Gate to as far as Cambridge, but still come back to get their hair cut!

Every day is pretty similar on Marks Gate for me! I really enjoy working here and meeting the nice residents.
