A hairdressing teacher, who left her job at Wiltshire College to set up her first salon in Bradford on Avon, has had a successful first month. Kim Gerrish, 44, opened KCG Hair Design, in Trowbridge Road, last month, with 15 students, many of whom will have work placements there.

She said: “A lot of my customers came in because of the leaflet drop, but others have come in after passing by or through word of mouth.”

She has lived in Bradford on Avon for 24 years and said: “This has been a childhood dream. “It was a good business opportunity and my expectations have been exceeded.”
