Cllr Derrick Griffin, Cllr Tony Briggs, Cllr John Cooper and Cllr Terry Wood sponsored free haircuts, on the 9th of October, for approximately 10 people from 10am to 4pm at the Town Hall they were worked with James Briggs, who runs his own barber business in the Town, along with a pop up barber shop at the Town Hall most Fridays. He also offers limited free hair cuts to boys and men whose families are using food bank facilities and are struggling with costs.
The Councillors were joined by Andrew Mitchell MP, who added in his weekly message on Facebook: "I went along to visit local barber James Briggs who runs a pop up barber shop at our Town Hall and offers limited free haircuts to men and boys whose families are using food bank facilities and are struggling with household costs. Four of our Town Councillors from the Walmley Minworth Ward John Cooper, Tony Briggs, Terry Wood and Derrick Griffin have generously been sponsoring free haircuts today. Those that are able to pay can support the initiative by contributing £5 towards the project. Another good example of our community coming together and providing support to those that need it."
