“As I was a single mum, I worked in Chester until I met my husband who was from Stoke.

“We stuck a pin in a map central to Stoke and Chester for equal distance to our places of work which is how we ended up in Nantwich!”

Her son went to Reaseheath College to study adventure sports before starting an apprenticeship at Build Skills in Winsford.

Paula said: “At the minute I employ two stylists, one apprentice and have a work experience girl once a week.

“I am currently in the process of interviewing.”
