Mr Stevens, who lives in Southwick, celebrated with family, friends, staff and a steady stream of customers.

As well as cakes and drink, the celebrations included a raffle in aid of the British Heart Foundation.

Mr Stevens said that the charity had been chosen because his wife Sue had had two heart attacks.

He said that he had no plans to retire, adding: “I love it. I drink tea, talk to lovely friends and cut hair.”
