Davidsons Homes and Brewers give Melbourne Infant School fresh lick of paint
A housebuilder and a decorating centre have teamed up to give the walls of Melbourne Infant School a brand-new lick of paint.
Davidsons Homes, which is building at Mill Gardens in Melbourne, and Brewers Decorators Centres, which has 190 branches throughout the UK, worked together to give the school hall a fresh look.
Brewers also challenged the children to name two paint colours – the sky blue and navy blue which were used in the project. Penguin Class won the competition with their suggestion of ‘Melbourne Blue’ for the lighter colour, while Koala Class chose ‘Neptune Blue’ for the navy.
Charlotte Gibbs, Headteacher at Melbourne Infant School, said: “A huge thank you to Davidsons and Brewers who have not only painted our school hall a lovely fresh new colour, but have also set the children a really enjoyable challenge.
“The students loved thinking about possibilities for the names, and it’s nice to know that the name ‘Melbourne’ will be used up and down the country.”
Stephanie King, Sales Director for Davidsons Homes, said: “We always try to support communities around our sites, and the area around Mill Gardens is no exception.
“When we heard that the hall in the local school was in need of a refresh, we knew we wanted to help, and Brewers were kind enough to work with us on it.
“We really hope that the children enjoy playing in the hall, which is now bright and colourful in two lovely shades of blue.”
