AN OLD village phone box that has a new lease of life as a shop is looking pristine after a it was given a fresh coat of paint.

Tots from Minety Pre-school too over the disused and neglected callbox just round the corner from the primary school and have been using it to sell the produce they grow.

They were planning to use the proceeds to pay for paint to spruce it up, but former owners BT came up with a complete original phonebox red kit.

Forest leader Stuart Jackson and his wife Sarah got to work with their paintbrushes to get the bijou shop looking its best once more.

The little business even has its own MPS Phonebox Shop page on Facebook, where customers can keep up to date with what is on offer.

The pre-school is also holding a tabletop sale at the Market Cross in Malmesbury on July 12 from 8am.
