After 45 years Long Eatons longest serving Barber is retiring. Dave Vann left school in 1964 and trained at Cyril Gents of Beeston. In October 1968 he moved to 395 Tamworth Road as assistant to Gerald Griffin. Alec Parker joined Dave as a trainee when Gerry left the business and so started a partnership that has lasted for 43 years. Dave is looking forward to a more relaxed life on the East coast, and would like to thank all customers who have visited him over the years and for the friendships he has made through his work. Alec will be carrying on as normal.
Dave Vann would like to thank all customers, family and friends for their gifts and good wishes on his retirement. He was overwhelmed by the response he received and would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year.
