Bence brightens up branch with mural

Published:  06 August, 2012

CHELTENHAM: George Bence's and Sons in Fairview Road has transformed a dull building with a mural.

Paul Bence, managing director, commissioned artist Teresa Poole to decorate the wall on the side of builders' merchant to help improve the look of the area.

He describes the mural as a "posh billboard" that sets off the landscape display in the yard. "I think it looks absolutely great. It is something a bit different, but also something classy and classical," Bence says.

"It should look good for the next three or four years and then we'll think of something else we can put up there."
