“Those that have piloted the facilities have really enjoyed the experience and I have no doubt that the spa will be a very welcome addition for our local customers. I am also thrilled that we could create a new role at Parc y Bocs and am pleased to welcome Jackie to the Burns family. We can’t wait to welcome our first customers to the salon.”
