The scheme was officially opened by Councillor Bob Wellington who presented the Chair of CoStar, Mrs Evelyn Winfield with a cheque for £4732 on behalf of Awards for All Wales. The funding has enabled CoStar to purchase the container and equipment necessary to set up the project. The launch was also attended by Martin Pearse of Community Repaint and CoStar Trustee Tom Matthews (pictured). Also pictured are Lynne Howles and Lorraine Hicks of CoStar.
The Repaint Project is based at the Threepenny Bit Community Hall in Greenmeadow, Cwmbran. The Community Hall has recently had a makeover and is now open again for community use. It is hoped that the local community will make use of the paint available and the services at the Community Hall.
