Bourne Rugby Club has been treated to some tender loving care in the form of a makeover for its clubhouse and changing rooms.

Members and supporters of the 25-year-old sports club have seen its home in Milking Nook Drive transformed with the help of paint firm Dulux through its Let’s Colour Project.

Dulux has pledged £1 million a year to support schools, charities, voluntary groups and sports clubs in brightening up their communities.

Volunteers from the rugby club became DIY enthusiasts to decorate the inside and outside of the clubhouse and changing rooms with paint donated by Dulux’s Decorator Centre in Peterborough.

Will Hawkins, secretary of Bourne Rugby Club, said: “We really wanted to bring the club into the 21st century and we knew that revamping the clubhouse and changing rooms would be the first important step.

“The club colours look fantastic and we’ve had plenty of great feedback from the players already, including visiting teams, which is lovely to hear.

“We were keen to update the facilities with some colour and we now have a club to be proud of.”

Gary Eversden of Dulux Decorator Centres, Peterborough, said: “Bourne Rugby Club has been an important part of our community for 25 years and we were really keen to see the club facilities revamped to a high standard.”
