When Rowney Green Pre-School wanted to provide a nicer space for the children to learn and play, it was Community RePaint which helped to take their plans from paper to wall.

Rowney Green Pre-School caters for children aged 2 – 5 years old and encourages learning through play. Located in a beautiful rural setting there is a strong emphasis on the children spending time outdoors but when the weather is bad sessions are held in the football pavilion.

Drab and windowless, the parents were eager to brighten up the pavilion and give the children a more pleasant and stimulating environment by painting a colourful mural. But, “As we plough all our surplus funds back into caring for the children there was no way we could afford the paint we needed,” said Becky Thomas, Chair of the Pre-Schools’ committee, “It was only thanks to Community RePaint Worcester that we were able to go ahead with our plans”.

Using paint which was donated to Community RePaint Worcester, the parents have painted a rural scene and brought the outside in, to transform the previously dark and dull changing rooms into a pleasant and bright space, and help keep the winter blues at bay!

Following the success of the mural and the discovery of Community RePaint the Pre-School Committee is now making plans to further enhance the children’s area with various painting projects including an alphabet frieze.
