I was invited along to the official opening of Gents & Co., a new barbers' shop in the heart of Abersychan. Owners, Tom Filer and Leon Morgan, have a really inspirational story to tell - they met on a barbering course in prison and decided to team up and turn their lives around. Read the full story over at the South Wales Argus.
Cllr Giles Davies was their very first customer, and was also brave (foolhardy?) enough to let me near his head with a pair of clippers...
They've done a really fantastic job refurbing the unit, next door to the old post office on Station Road. Check out their Facebook page for more info and lots of videos of the guys in action!
