Sometimes you win!
Four weeks ago, Coledale Surf club was looking a little worse for wear.
Vandals had graffitied the building and time and the harsh location had taken it’s toll.
With just a couple of weeks left before the start of beach season, club members decided it was time for a makeover.
They approached Dulux Paints, which runs a ‘Paint Your Club’ scheme, in a bid to match the existing colour so they could get to work and paint their club.
Much to their delight, Dulux was looking to shoot a new TV commercial.
“It was certainly a case of being in the right place at the right time,” says club president Anthony O’Donoghue. “Dulux gave us the paint, AND did all the work for us. They even fixed the concrete cancer and repaired the eaves.
“It was all done in four weeks. We couldn’t believe it. Council wouldn’t let us change the colour, but we have some great new signage. It looks fantastic!”
The television commercial is now in production. Keep an eye out, and you just might see some familiar faces as thirteen club members were stars on the day!
