A FORMER horse owner from Belbroughton has transformed a rusty horsebox into a rustic mobile bar and launched her own business.

Jess Savva, 25, bought the trailer, used to transport horses, as scrap from a seller in Huddersfield, and has worked tirelessly over the last few weeks to create the 'Bevvy Box', now available to hire for events.

Jess said: "I decided to set up a mobile bar events company at the end of last summer and then decided to expand on that and go into weddings. I did a bit of research on mobile bar conversions and saw people had used caravans and things like that, and then I found this really cheap nasty old horsebox for sale in Huddersfield and drove and picked it up, brought it home, stripped it out and sent it to a guy to do the metal work and create a serving hatch.

"It's recently just come back from the spray painters and it looks beautiful."

The Bevvy Box is stocked full with alcoholic drinks, including champagne and spirits for cocktails, ready to be hired for weddings, corporate events, festivals and even garden parties.

Jess's company, Savva Bars Co., has already catered for events such as the Midlands Food and Drink Festival, Belbroughton Beer Festival and Romstock Music Festival.
