Britain's 'top beautician' sets up salon in Quedgeley
A QUEDGELEY community centre may seem an unlikely place for a beauty salon, but one of Britain's top beauticians has set up her new business there.
Sarah James, from Cooper's Edge, came second in the British Beauty and Spa Awards in 2007, fending off thousands of other people.
Now the 29-year-old is carrying out treatments at the Q Club, in School Lane, including facials, massages, waxing and manicures.
"I've always wanted to start out on my own," she said.

"It's been very challenging but exciting at the same time."
She enjoyed a successful career in a string of top Cheltenham beauty firms before joining Cedars in Gloucester's GL1 leisure centre and then setting up her business – Butterflies Beauty Therapy – in her home city.
Sarah said: "I have clients who travel from Cheltenham just to come back to me.
"But the best of all, I have one lady from Canada who came to me while on holiday and she comes back to London every year and travels over to me for her treatments."
