Community RePaint Lowestoft was chosen as one of four businesses to support this year by Farrans Construction. When asked how they could help out the scheme, the scheme asked Farrans Construction to add a splash of colour to the outside of the scheme building.
Ahead of painting, the team from Farrans Construction cleaned the outside with a huge pressure washer, to wash away any dirt before painting.
As a Community RePaint scheme, there was lots of leftover paint ready to be used to brighten up the building. Bright colours were used to really give the building a bold statement and reflect all the positive work the scheme and host organisation Re-Utilise does. Business owner and Community RePaint scheme manager Carol Dean said “the results exceeded my expectations”.
Community RePaint Lowestoft joined the network in 2020 was a finalist in the Lowestoft & Waveney Gala Business Awards, for their incredible work throughout the COVID pandemic. Read the article about that here.
The scheme collects usable, leftover paint from local retailers, businesses and paint manufacturers. The paint is available to individuals and groups and individuals at an affordable price. To pick up paint for your project, you simply need to pop in and visit them during their opening hours. We would recommend calling in advance of making long journeys to the scheme as the amount of paint available will fluctuate throughout the year.
