  • 2 Aug 2017

Letchworth Garden City RUFC has been given a clubhouse makeover on behalf of the Dulux Select Decorators.

Dulux Selector Decorator and Club Vice President David Cooper nominated the well-used rugby clubhouse for the makeover.

The main club room, which underwent the renovation, was in desperate need of some TLC with walls awash with faded muddy handprints and chipped paint. The room is often busy, seeing hundreds of players and fans in addition to being used as a function room for weddings and birthdays.

The Dulux team recommended the use of Diamond, recently reformulated to withstand even tougher dirt and stain accidents and to make walls easier to wipe clean, thus reducing the need to regularly redecorate.

Christopher Lunnon, Chairman at Letchworth Garden City RUFC, commented on the makeover: “I am truly appreciative of the fantastic work undertaken by the Dulux Select Decorators. We are thrilled with the result of the makeover and it has made us even more proud of our fantastic club.”
