A NEW hairdressing salon – Hair Hub - run by local couple Rebecca and Steve West, has opened in Bridgwater Town Centre.

The new salon is based in No 1 High Street, a retail unit owned by Sedgemoor District Council.

A Sedgemoor District Council spokesman said: "The shop was fully refurbished by the council recently and forms part of the iconic Grade I listed Cornhill Building and is an excellent location for the proposed business."

Rebecca has worked as a stylist locally for some years; and together with her husband Steve, they thought it was time to branch out on their own.

Councillor Peter Clayton said: “It is always exciting when a new business venture opens in the town and I wish Mr and Mrs West all the best.”
