Dani White owns Barkingside hair salon Sixtysix and they raised £600 for The Little Princess Trust.

What is your connection with Redbridge?

I opened my own hair salon (Sixtysix) in Barkingside High Street three years ago and I moved to the area shortly after.

What’s the best thing about working or living in Redbridge?

I love the people that live here, it’s an amazing community. I have lots of amazing customers that come from all over Redbridge, and everyone is so friendly when they come into the salon.

What one thing would you change about the borough?

If I could change anything, I would bring some more nice pubs to the area. I think they are an important part of our community and I saw the article about how 15 pubs had closed in the last 16 years.

I think that instead of pubs closing we should be opening new ones.

Use three words to describe the borough.

Friendly. Homely. Diverse.

Who is the most inspiring person you know?

It has got to 100 per cent be my dad – David White.

He was a very good businessman for a long time, and has been a real inspiration for me.

Whenever I have a problem, or have a question about anything I always go to him, and he always knows the answer and what is the best thing to do.

What new law would you introduce if you were prime minister?

I would make a law that every business has to have a mandatory day off work every year, where they hold a charity fundraising day.

If you were the editor of this paper, what issues in the borough would you focus on?

Some of the main issues in the borough are young people and knife-crime, I know in the past the Recorder ran campaigns about knife-crime and I think this is an important thing to focus on what we can do to reduce this.
