Volunteers brighten up the pavilion

A MONIFIETH landmark was recently given a new lease of life thanks to some local volunteers working in partnership with Dulux.

The pavilion on Riverside Drive was brightened up with some paint provided by the Dulux ‘Let’s Colour Project’ and elbow grease from volunteers last month.

The interior of the pavilion was in desperate need of a splash of colour after nearly 20 years of neglect.

A bright palette of blue, yellow, orange and green transformed the pavilion with a beach themed mural with a sunset at its centre.

Monifieth Tennis Club secretary Melanie Carnegie nominated the pavilion to receive a makeover and the Dulux Decorator Centre in the Dryburgh Industrial Estate, Dundee, donated the necessary paint.

Melanie said: “The pavilion has been a part of Angus for so long that we wanted to bring it up to date with a splash of colour.

“We needed a space where we could welcome our members as well as a place to display local news for the wider community and thanks to its recent transformation, our pavilion now fits the bill.
“We’re so grateful to Dulux for the paint donation as it’s made such a difference to our surroundings. We’ve had so many compliments on our new look and we hope that even more people come down and get involved with sport.”

John McDougall, store manager of Dulux Decorator Centres in Dundee, said: “The pavilion’s makeover is a great way to celebrate a very successful year of sport in the UK and we were more than happy to help add some colour to the local area.”
