Jane Gilks

I`m very sorry to say that my friend Jane Gilks, the well known Barrow-upon-Soar hairdresser, passed away a few days ago.

Jane was one of the first people I met (she cut my hair!) when I moved to Loughborough in 1975 to manage the Town Hall, and she was a colleague on an adult teaching course in the mid 1990s.

She had been running her hairdressing salon at Barrow for forty years, having achieved many qualifications and distinctions.

Jane lived with her husband Andrew at Gaddesby.

Always cheerful, she would always give a smile and a wave as I strolled down Barrow High Street. She will be very much missed.

Jane was 62.
