FEELING FRESH: Fleet Baptist Church after the make over.

A warm pearl and terra ombra colour scheme is a welcome change for visitors to Fleet Hargate Baptist Church – its first interior facelift in over 20 years.

Steve Lait, of Dulux Interior Design Service, an In2style Interiors franchise, created the new colour scheme.

He was tasked with four areas to makeover: the sanctuary, vestibule, vestry and side entrance. Each had to match the existing floor and fabric on the alter.

A church panel chose the classic, warm and inviting scheme Steve put forward.

He said: “The church is very proud and happy with the results.”

Meanwhile, Sutton St James village hall has been undergoing improvements.

There’s a new path, much to the delight of village residents who rely on the route as a short cut, while 40 tons of gravel has reimbursed the car park.

Paul Hinks, vice chairman Sutton St James parish council, said: “There has been a significant improvement. We had a problem with potholes, now it looks so much better.

Grants from Lincolnshire County councillor William Webb and South Holland District councillor Michael David Seymore helped pay for the revamp and a special thanks goes to local resident and farmer, Anthony Rose, who supplied equipment and labour for the jobs free of charge.

Paul said: “It’s really nice to have local involvement like Anthony. He is often making help available, it is lovely to have someone like him.”
