There's a new face on the block
A colourful mural has transformed the outside of a Bath building.
Widcombe Social Club will be shutting on Sunday for a redevelopment that will see the demolition of the old building and the construction of a new centre.
But before it is knocked down, the building that is seen by thousands of motorists every day has been used as a backdrop for some urban art.
Artists Bradley Macmath, Mr Riks, Tomo and Mr Deanz spent a week transforming the outside of the building, helped by children from Widcombe Junior School.

The project was the idea of club treasurer Chris Rogers, art gallery owner Paul Villalba and artist Grant Robson.
Mr Rogers sees the art project as a way of making the community aware of the redevelopment of the club, which will create a new community centre and performance space.
"The success of the new club depends on attracting the interest and involvement of a new generation of users, and the urban art project is going to kickstart that process."
The new centre will include a shop and flats, and will open in early 2014.
A series of events and activities has been taking place to say goodbye to the old building, which will end with a farewell party and auction on Sunday.
The auction, conducted by MP Don Foster, includes club memorabilia and examples of work from the urban artists responsible for the mural.
Viewing starts at 6pm and the auction takes place at 7.30pm.
