partner Elspeth Sculthorpe, who has helped Valerie with the daily running of the business for a number of years. Valerie said "With our training programme,
apprenticeships and our choice of advanced products, we've always tried to keep Snipetts on the leading edge while celebrating the fact that we are a local business, run by Ely people for Ely people.
Handing over the reins to Elspeth is something that is part of that process o continue flourishing as we have. While I am looking forward to a quieter role, I'm excited about the future" "I would
like to thank all of my customers and staff for their loyalty over the years" Elspeth said "Snipetts is part of the fabric of the city. Valerie and Glynis have built up an excellent client base over
the years by providing our customers with the best possible service. With my passion and love for all aspects of hairdressing I am fully committed to keeping those levels of service at an excellent
standard" The salon recently celebrated getting through to the Loreal Colour Trophy regional finals held at Duxford Imperial War Museum. Elspeth has already launched a new website and facebook page
