Village Hall Gets a Fresh Lick of Paint

Plymouth Brethren

Wolston Village Hall

When paintwork at the Wolston Village Hall was showing signs of wear and tear the Village Hall Committee decided to contact the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church in nearby Binley Woods to see if they might be able to offer some help.

After a site visit to list all areas needing attention the project was willingly taken on by PBCC members from the Eastern Green area of Coventry who assembled a team of enthusiastic volunteers ready for the big day.

On Saturday April 12th preparation work started in earnest at 7:30am.

A team of eight worked through the day until 7pm by which time they had given the kitchen a thorough spring clean, successfully re-decorated all the gloss surfaces in the entrance hall, redecorated and thoroughly cleaned the toilet areas, touched up various areas of paintwork in the main hall and fitted a new door closer – all to the delight of the Village Hall Committee who were quick to express their appreciation. A spokesperson for the Committee stated “The saying actions speak louder than words is certainly reflected in the actions of the Brethren members and their support is much appreciated”.

    Fair play on you all, giving up a Saturday to do cleaning and painting when I’m sure you would rather have been doing more interesting things!

    Excellent work! It’s always uplifting to work in a clean, freshly painted environment. Gives a good image to the government as well. Brilliant idea!
