A brave outgoing mayor is planning to lose her locks in memory of her late husband.

A brave outgoing mayor is planning to lose her locks in memory of her late husband.

Garstang mayor Coun Sandra Perkins’ last act in the civic role will see her having her head shaved to raise money for Dementia Research.

She said: “Next Saturday is my final mayoral occasion and I am getting my head shaved.

“At my age I do think it’s a bit drastic, but I wanted to do something that didn’t have any overheads – so to speak!”

Coun Perkins lost her husband to dementia in 2011.

She said: “It is an emotive choice.

“It is a wonderful charity and the money will go straight to fund research and treatment.”

Coun Perkins will have her hair cut outside Booths on Cherestanc Square, Garstang, on Saturday at 11am.
