Guinness Housing sponsored the project to spruce up Woolpack Meadows play area in Longmeadow with the additional support of community partners Selwood Housing, Trowbridge Town Council, Sanctuary, Sovereign and Bagnalls. A group of local volunteers undertook the three day task of repainting the entire play area, as there were no funds available from Wiltshire Council to carry out the project.Bagnalls donated pots of paint in a rainbow of bright colours in line with its Community Paintbrush scheme, so that the local volunteers could paint areas that were starting to look shabby.
The Community Paintbrush scheme was established in 2012 as part of Bagnalls commitment to the environment. Although waste paint can be recycled we prefer to donate any spare paint we have to local community projects.
If you have a similar community painting project in your area then please give us a call. We will do our best to help by donating any spare paint that we no longer have a need for through our Community Paintbrush Scheme.
