Sleaford’s museum project has a bright future after a Lincolnshire paint firm injected some colour into the designs.

Witham Oil and Paint, of Lincoln, has generously donated paint to decorate the exterior and interior of Sleaford’s new museum in Southgate.

The company has manufactured and sold quality oils and paints throughout the country since 1921, supplying customers including Silverstone and the Royal Estate at Sandringham. The Museum Trust committee was delighted to receive the gift.

Sales Director, Richard Scarbrough, heard about the project as he lives in Sleaford and was happy to help, saying: “It is a very good cause to get something back in the town.”

The Trust volunteers will decorate the building in the colours of the new logo created by Sleaford-based graphic designer Tom Yates.

A Trust spokesman said: “We have used locally based businesses and organisations wherever possible. To have sponsorship and donations from firms is very rewarding and their names will be displayed on an acknowledgement board.”

At a ceremony on Monday Mr Scarbrough presented the first batch of paint to volunteers.
