Glidden Paint and a Pint Winner

Glidden Paint and a Pint Winner announced. Now looking for decorators to undertake work.

Glidden Trade, one of the UK’s leading paint brands, has unveiled the winners of its hotly contested Paint and a Pint makeover competition. After battling it out against entrants from across the country, The Corner Pin in Morton, Derbyshire, was declared the winner of a £5,000 business boosting transformation.

Landlord, Steven Pyatt, put the pub forward after hearing about the Glidden Paint and a Pint competition in the Publican’s Morning Advertiser magazine. “The Corner Pin is a traditional pub right at the heart of our community, but it’s been in need of a revamp for a while now. When I heard about Paint and a Pint, I thought it would be a great opportunity to reinvigorate our business and give it a new lease of life,” said Steven.

The competition judges selected The Corner Pin for the makeover based on the dedication and community spirit of its owner and the creativity of its poetic entry:

The punters would pass us by, not going in there, they’d cry

We often feel inferior, because of our drab exterior

But the future is grand, with five in hand

Our best features are no longer hidden, and it’s all thanks to Glidden[/box]

Also included in the prize is colour and paint advice from the experts at Glidden Trade. The company will also contribute towards The Corner Pin’s re-opening party, so the owner can share the new look with his local community.

The Paint and a Pint competition was set up to help the UK’s struggling pub sector; with the current economic climate and changes to beer tax, 12 pubs now close across Britain every week[1]. To win the contest, Steven simply submitted images of his pub along with a plea stating why it deserved to win.
