Barber hopes to give the recession the chop

A WESTON barber is hoping to prove a cut above the rest after opening a new shop.

Matthew Robbins has opened up a new salon in Drove Road and hopes to buck the recession that has hit many small businesses.

It signals a change of lifestyle for Matthew who had spent more than 20 years as a stonemason.

But he said he fancied a career change and after training at Bridgwater college helped work at various salons before setting up his own business, Drove Road Barbershop, this month.
