An Ely barbers has won a top award at the National Hair & Beauty Awards.

MR. Barbers, on Fore Hill, beat dozens of finalists from across the country to receive the Best Group of Business award at the prestigious awards ceremony in Birmingham on November 19.

The barbers was founded by Sam Prior and Karl Foster and has since expanded to having over 20 shops across the UK, including Cambridge, Bury St Edmunds, Newmarket and Saffron Walden.

Agnes Leonard, president of the National Hairdressers Foundation (NHF), said: “Our winners have worked extremely hard to get to where they are today, so we wanted to use the Business Awards as an opportunity to recognise their success.

“Receiving a national business award is a huge achievement for MR. Barbers so they should be thrilled with what they have achieved!”
