Military veterans have helped update the interior design at a sales office in Stow-on-the-Wold.

Former armed forces personnel from the Heroes4Hire-Handymen built furniture and painted the Brio Retirement Living office in The Square, which opened earlier this month.

The company teamed up with Heroes4Hire which employs veterans who have left the armed forces and have been redeployed as handymen and women.

Brio is now looking to partner with Heroes4Hire across its national retirement village portfolio. Sites have already been launched at Chapelton in Aberdeenshire, as well as Stow-in-the-Wold. The Stow development will include one, two and three-bedroom apartments and two and three-bedroom bungalows. Phase one of the site is due for completion in summer 2019.

Amy Deehan, sales manager at the Stow office said: “Heroes4Hire have given our office a whole new look. They assembled furniture, hung blinds and painted the office.

"We’re keen for our maintenance team to work alongside them on future developments. We’re pleased we could support the organisation by offering veterans skilled work and help the transition to civilian life."

Nigel Blanchard, Heroes4Hire founder and CEO, said: "Our handymen and women completed a full redecoration inside the Brio sales office, creating a fresh and bright work environment for all staff. We’re looking forward to working together in the future on sales offices across the country."
