Clitheroe_Park_Crown_Paints

We are pleased to announce that our ‘Kick Out the Can’ initiative has yet again inspired another community project, encouraging local residents to bring life to a Victorian Park in Clitheroe.


The old unwanted paint, donated by homeowners across the country, helped a group of people known as Friends of Brungerley Park, to achieve their goal of rescuing 15 old Victorian benches.


The Victorian benches that were in the process of being replaced by the council due to wear and tear, now look amazing thanks to a fresh coat of green paint.


Dorothy Jackson, Chairman of Friends of Brungerley Park, said: “The benches look great and the donated paint has made a big difference to us as we have been able to keep them in good condition.”


Once again here at Crown HQ, we would like to thank the homeowners who supported our ‘Kick Out the Can’ campaign. These donations not only helped to support Climate Week, but also help develop and preserve heritage towns like Clitheroe, as well as various smaller community projects nationwide.


For more information about Climate Week and details on how you can get involved with events in your area, please visit their website.
