Over 60s Club Welcomes New Hairdresser

Henley’s Over 60’s Club on Market Place has recently welcomed a new hairdresser, Bianca Knibbs, to their in house salon.

The Over 60’s Club in Henley has a yearly membership fee of £18. Paula Isaac, co-Manager of the Club said “We have a lot going on, including Bingo on Tuesdays and Fridays at 2pm, and cooked, delicious lunches by our chef on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays which cost £6 for our members and £8 for non-members, including a pudding! We have a chiropodist who visits the club on a Monday, and we now have the lovely Bianca doing hair in our salon, who we hope will be very popular.”

Bianca saw the position advertised on the Henley Herald, following the retirement of their former hairdresser Janet who was at the Club for 20 years.

Bianca works 9:30-3pm on Wednesday’s and Thursday’s at the Club in the recently decorated salon. Members get discounted prices, but anyone is welcome to make an appointment simply by ringing the club to book on 01491574718. Payment is possible by cash or cheque, and a price list for 2019 is printed on the noticeboard in the salon.

Bianca, a local mum of two, said “I am delighted to be working here. I have been hairdressing for 13 years and have experience cutting both men’s and women’s hair. I have been in Henley for 6 years. I am South African, and although I do enjoy going back to visit every year, I love Henley and will probably never leave.”
