HEREFORDSHIRE actor John Challis officially opened a refurbished furniture store on Saturday.

Mr Challis, who played Boycie in classic sitcom Only Fools and Horses, cut the ribbon at Annetts on Three Elms Trading Estate in Hereford.

The store has spent more than £250,000 to transform the store to make it more dynamic and up to date.

"John was a star keeping everyone entertained and reassuringly we enjoyed our best ever August Bank Holiday trading," said store manager Ben Sullivan.

"We’d like to thank all our loyal customers for giving us the confidence to re-fit the store and look forward to another 90 years of successful trading."
