New lease of life for recreation club

New lease of life for recreation club

The transformation of a sports centre in Essex has created a lasting legacy for the community in a partnership between Crown Paints and Kent Blaxill. Earls Colne Recreation Club is now a warm and welcoming environment, which encourages locals to enjoy sport and a social space. The work has been carried out at the club under the ‘All Hands On Dec’ campaign organised by Crown Paints and Kent Blaxill.

One of the most striking elements of the restoration was the refurbishment of the sports court. Due to the complex nature of the works, the complete job of sanding, re-lacquering and re-marking the court lines was performed by specialist contractors Conrad Park, who used Sadolin PV67 Heavy Duty Varnish for a premium finish on the project. Other Crown Paints’ products used included Crown Trade Clean Extreme, which is ideal product for high-traffic areas, offering a finish that is 100% more stain resistant compared to conventional matt and vinyl emulsion.

A colour scheme was also drawn up by the Crown Paints’ Colour Services Team, who used the latest visualisation technology to bring the shades to life. Sue Freear, from Earls Colne Recreation Club, said: “We are overwhelmed to have won and really appreciate the help we’ve received.”
