A community centre in Watford has unveiled a new look, thanks to a paint donation from the Dulux Let’s Colour Project.

The Multi Cultural Community Centre in Durban Road West has operated since 1985 and currently has 600 people using the facilities every week, taking part in a variety of activities including health and fitness classes, lunch clubs and coffee mornings.

Some of the centre’s interior walls had not been decorated for 15 years until 40 volunteers from nearby The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints rolled up their sleeves to decorate the walls in greens and blues, giving the centre a new lease of life.

The paint was donated by Dulux Decorator Centres in Whippendell Road  after Hamzah Akhtar nominated the project online.

Hamzah said: "It has made a huge difference and the centre now looks much better.

"The centre is the heart of the community and it has played a crucial role in the last 28 years. For this reason, having a well decorated centre will bring much joy to many local residents."
