We were delighted to win the award for Best Independent Salon in the British High Street Awards for Taunton Deane. Thank you to everyone who voted for us and to MP Rebecca Pow who called into The Mount to present our certificate.
On 1st March, The Mount celebrated 15 years of trading. As a 15th anniversary is traditionally celebrated with crystal, we did it in style by holding a Crystal Ball. This was held in aid of our 2019 salon charity, The Meningitis Research Foundation.
Thank you to Woodlands Castle for accomodating us, On Event Production Co for lighting us up, A Touch of Class Events for the table decorations, Sassi Holford for making Ali feel glamorous and Snappa for entertaining us!
The evening was a great success with a formal dinner, auction of promises and dancing. Thank you to all the businesses who kindly provided raffle and auction prizes. We have raised £3000 for our charity.
Throughout May, Salon Director Alison will be away from the salon on an epic adventure walking the 630 mile South West coast path in aid of The Meningitis Research Foundation.
