Sommervilles Barber’s in Fintry celebrated its first birthday with a fun autism/child-friendly day, including a visit from R&J Thera-pony Rosie.
Salon owner Lisa Sommerville, 33, said: “It was fantastic. All the kids had a great time.
“It was busier than I expected it would be, there was a queue down the street. Lots of autistic kids enjoyed the pony.”
Lisa added: “We took the kids down in groups where they got to groom the pony and pet it. We coloured all the kids’ hair with spray paint. We also had a sensory room in case the kids felt a little overwhelmed.”
Lisa added that autism was something close to her heart. “We are autistic-friendly. No matter the disabilities people are always welcome and what better way to celebrate than putting on a child friendly day?”
