Over 50 voluntary and community groups have signed up as members to Community RePaint Wirral, ranging from Hooton Airfield to Hoylake Methodist Church to Rugby Clubs to Drug Rehabilitation Centres. The end of August marked their first birthday in operation and they have redistributed an incredible 5,678 litres of paint which would otherwise have ended up in landfill. Jim O’Neil said ‘It is so much better that paint has been saved and used to brighten up walls and woodwork of the community and voluntary sector.’
