One Can helps village fly the Jubilee flag

Bradite One Can and a local builders’ merchants have helped a small Suffolk village to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Residents of Thorpe Morieux voted for a giant Union Jack to be painted on the end wall of their village hall. A design of a flag fluttering in the breeze was worked up by Tony Sheppard, and a team of keen helpers was assembled to take on the task.

Then it was off to Kent Blaxill, Bury St Edmunds to seek some paint advice. “Knowing the properties of Bradite One Can … this made it the go-to product for this project,” said the store’s decorative branch manager, Mark Levett.

“After contacting Bradite about the project, they came back with an offer to supply the paints which was very gratefully received by those in Thorpe Morieux.”.  

Paint was provided – of course in a colour scheme of red, white and blue – and the community got the job underway, finishing in good time for next weekend’s festive celebrations.
