KIRKCALDY Squash Club has received a much needed lick of paint thanks to Dulux Decorator Centres situated in the town’s Forth Avenue Industrial Estate.
The club, on Bennochy Road, was established in 1972 and since then has been the local centre for people to learn and play squash at all levels of skill.
However over the last 40 years the exterior of the building has not been maintained, so was in need of a good lick of paint to brighten it up.
Volunteers from the squash club canvassed the local community to gather suggestions for the re-design of the exterior walls and asked for support with the decorating. Local scouts offered their services to paint the club and managed to completely transform its appearance.
The donation was made as part of Dulux Decorator Centres’ Colouring the Community scheme, after club secretary, Duncan Zuill, contacted the local store. The scheme aims to help local community groups and charities restore their premises and surrounding areas.
Duncan said: “We are extremely grateful to Dulux Decorator Centres for the generous paint donation, which has enabled us to revamp the club and make it much more attractive and inviting to the local community.”
Bill Stott, store manager of Dulux Decorator Centres in Kirkcaldy, said: “The volunteers have done a wonderful job revamping the club house and the premises now look better than ever.”
