A sad day for Bunga Bunga

By News

The owners of Inception Group were very down hearted to be re-painting the Italian stripes of Bunga Bunga last week!

For anyone that may have followed this story: Earlier this summer we painted the exterior of Bunga Bunga in the colours of the Italian flag only to be told (firmly) by the council that we had to repaint it white ASAP. So owners Charlie Gilkes and Duncan Stirling decided to use the smallest paint brushes they could find and personally start to re-paint it….

Thank you to everyone who supported #SaveOurStripes, we were truly touched!
