“Christmas in Beverley is always special, but this year is going to be one to remember.”
“De Lacy Hair & Beauty we are delighted to have coaxed Princess Elsa and Olaf the Snowman into swapping their magical kingdom for ours.”

“It’s very kind of Dean to come along, he is a legend to a lot of people in the area and to see him help with the community will see us raise a lot of money for charity I’m sure.”
