A HAIR salon owner who gives those suffering hair loss a lifeline and dedicated support enjoyed a day out to remember.

Rebecca Morgan-Brennan, who runs Morgan's Hair, Beauty and Wigs in Prestatyn and Chester and is a hair loss specialist, attended the King's Garden Party at Buckingham Palace earlier in May.

She was invited to visit after being nominated by the Welsh Government for her contribution to helping those with hair loss.

The night before the event, Rebecca was concerned she wouldn't be able to get to the palace after discovering all the trains were cancelled to London from Chester.

Thankfully Rebecca's husband Neil managed to secure a hire car.

Rebecca said: "The day was really great. It started off being a bit traumatic because I had booked our train tickets months in advance and then someone mentioned about the train strike the day before but the train app, I used to book the tickets, hadn't informed me that the train was cancelled. I checked later that night and the website did state that the trains were cancelled to London but it still wasn't stated on the app.

"I really didn't think we would be able to go because... everyone said 'hire a car' but we had put our car in the garage that day because we were going on holiday the next day [Rebecca and Neil are currently on holiday in Texas].

"My beautiful husband managed to save the day and managed to sort it all out.

"He sorted a hire car and it took us four-and-a-half hours to drive into the centre of London. We managed to get parked up, get changed. We parked at a hotel car park and got changed in the hotel and then made our way to the palace."

Rebecca said there was a lot of people in attendance at the party.

"I can't say exactly but well over 5,000," she said.

"The gardens were beautiful and they served us sandwiches, cakes and little quiches and drinks - there was tea, iced coffee, water. They were also serving ice creams."

Rebecca very briefly saw Charles III and Queen Camilla.

"They had bands playing and big marquees up," she continued.

"There was people of different nationalities, people in military dress, all different age groups and lots of mayors wearing their chains.

"It was just a really wonderful experience and we felt very honoured and privilege that the Welsh Government had put us forward for this opportunity.

"It all turned out great in the end."
