A Radlett football club has unveiled a brand new look, thanks to a paint donation from the Dulux Let's Colour Project.
Belstone Football Club gets a colourful makeover
Belstone Football Club, on Watling Street, was founded in 1983 and currently provides a base and facilities for three youth teams, three adult teams and 100 members.
Having not been painted for around 10 years, the clubhouse's interior walls were looking worse for wear and the club's committee decided to revive the building and give it a much-needed lick of paint.
Four volunteers rolled up their sleeves and dedicated two days of their time to redecorate the walls, using yellow and orange paints donated by Dulux Decorator Centres in St Albans.
The donation was made as part of the Let's Colour mission to add colour to people's lives, after committee member, Glynne Cherrington, nominated the project online.
Glynne said: "We are extremely grateful to Dulux Decorator Centres for the generous paint donation. The clubhouse was looking so tired after a decade without decoration and the makeover was well overdue.
"The new look has improved the image of the club and hopefully will encourage even more football players to come down and make the most of the facilities."
Mark Wallace, store manager of Dulux Decorator Centres on New House Park, said: "Belstone Football Club is looking great after its makeover and it's good to hear that members are pleased with its new look. We hope that the club continues to be enjoyed for many more years to come."
