He's had his dreadlocks for longer than he's worked at Citywide!

But Bayside open space crew member Scott Barnes says he's not dreading losing his locks for charity.

"It's about time they probably came off," jokes Scott, who's worked on Citywide's horticulture services contract for the City of Bayside for 13 years.

"I had them done 16 years ago. I was travelling in Venice, Italy, and hooked up with three girls from Poland. They had dreadlocks so I asked if they could do mine - the things you do when you're travelling!"

Sensing it was time for a change, Scott will undergo the razor at Monterey Community Park, Frankston North in Victoria, to raise funds for the Leukaemia Foundation, as part of the World's Greatest Shave, on March 30th.
