A village hall has a brand new look thanks to the hard work of staff and a generous paint donation by Dulux.
Gedney Dyke Village Hall applied for the paint donation because staff felt it needed a warmer and more inviting look to bring it into the 21st century.
Chairman Richard Ward nominated the project online.
He said: “We are so pleased with our bright new look. Our members have already commented on how much more vibrant and welcoming the centre seems now, so we’re hoping this will help draw more people in to use our facilities.
“The hall is an important hub for local people and we hope they like what we’ve done with the place.”
Five volunteers painted the rooms in bright raspberry red and light chocolate brown, as these colours complemented the recently refurbished bar area.
The hall hosts groups and events for the wider community including bingo and dance classes, with up to 250 members attending on a regular basis.
The paint was donated by Dulux Decorator Centres in Peterborough, as part of the Dulux Let’s Colour Project.
Store manager Gary Eversden said: “We really like the colours the staff at Gedney Dyke Village Hall have chosen, as they have helped create a really friendly feel. We hope local people make the most of their new-look village hall.”
