TWO brothers who set up an electrical company in Andover have been given a cash boost to help their business.

Qualified electricians Philip and Andy Murray have teamed up to launch a new installation firm in the town, Murray Electrical.

The pair were awarded £750 by Test Valley Borough Council as part of its Business Incentive Grant scheme.

Philip Murray said: “It's great working with my brother as we both pride ourselves on our attention to detail, reliability and customer service.

“We are very grateful for the support from the council through the Business Incentive Grant.”

The cheque was presented to the brothers by Winton ward member Councillor Chris Lynn.

Cllr Lynn said: “Murray Electrical has had a brilliant start to their new venture, gaining plenty of work through word of mouth as well as offers for sub-contracting in the area.

“I wish them every success going forward.”

The council’s Business Incentive Grants are available to anyone looking to set up their own business in Test Valley.

Anyone who successfully applies for the grant will receive £750 if their business is still going strong six months later.
