Bagnalls were only too happy to help children from the Limehurst Village in Oldham add a splash of colour to fencing that surrounded a local community hall. Equipping a group of 9-12 year olds with paint and brushes probably didn’t sound the smartest idea, however in the trusted hands of two experienced Bagnalls’ painters a rainbow of colours emerged.
Bagnalls are in the second year of a £5m contract with the Regenda Group and through our Community Paintbrush Scheme we continue to support the local communities in which we work. Fencing, which had been damaged by arson, was repaired by Bagnalls and left ready to be painted by kids from the area. Bagnalls’ Branch Manager, Mike Worrall said “Community involvement is essential in making painting partnerships like the one with Regenda work. Helping out in community projects we can reassure residents that we care and that we want to be involved.”
Jenny Dyson, Regenda Community Development Officer, added “In no time at all the children had completely transformed the fence into a really colourful and eye-catching corner. It looks lovely and it will now be an attractive backdrop to our Limehurst Summer Fair. Thanks to Bagnalls for arranging the Community Paintbrush day and giving up their time to work with the children, they really enjoyed themselves.”
The project was also supported by Dulux Trade who kindly donated the paint.
