Pupils from Mandeville primary school have given the hoardings around the King Offa pub a lick of paint.
The schoolkids helped local artist Audrey Montet create an eye-catching mural around the pub.
Audrey, who runs Montet Designs, said: “I was very impressed by the children’s efforts.
“They threw themselves into the task with great energy and enthusiasm, showing considerable artistic talent. They also had a lot of fun.”
The King Offa site, in Cottonmill, is being turned into housing after the pub closed in 2015.
