Fiona Clark is a refreshing, bright and bubbly person. She is a barber and proud of it – just don’t dare call her a hairdresser!

Our chat gives us first-hand knowledge of what it’s like to run a business in a time of Covid-19 closures.

We talk about school days in Scotland and Scottish independence as well as hobbies including boot camps, running and home renovation.

A lively young lady who was a delight to interview.

Recording this social history, chatting to different people about a whole host of subjects is a real pleasure, such an interesting and I think worthwhile project for people to listen to both now and in years to come.
