Help with the paint job?

Horowhenua Chronicle - - NEWS -

Levin Se­nior Cit­i­zens need a big wad of cash to paint their hall, at 44 Cam­bridge Street.

The out­side of the build­ing has been in need of a few coats of paint for a while now and the quotes for the job are rather high, too high for the Se­nior Cit­i­zens to cope.

The rea­son for the high prices is the OSH re­quire­ment for pain­ters to use scaf­fold­ing — half the amount needed is for scaf­fold­ing alone.

“It is a real worry for us,” spokesper­son Allen Lit­tle said. “This job is be­yond us and has been drag­ging on for a few years now be­cause we have not known how to solve this.”

Quotes have been ob­tained from sev­eral com­pa­nies and these keep go­ing up.

Of­fers of dis­counted paint and other help have been made, but the job is still too ex­pen­sive.

The hall has been home to many com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions since 1957.

Levin Se­nior Cit­i­zens are look­ing for $43,000 to do the job. If you can help, go to https:/ /givealit­tle.co.nz/cause/hal­paint­ing
