There’s good news for local residents who need to do a spot of decorating without breaking the bank, following the opening of the RBH Paint Shop in Freehold.

RBH is part of the Community RePaint network, making sure that as much unwanted or surplus paint is re-used as possible. This paint has been available through the RBH “pass it on” scheme, and due to high demand RBH have now opened a Paint Shop. The shop is located at 271 Olney in Freehold, and is open Monday to Friday from 10am until 1pm. The shop is just a short hop from the RBH customer centre at St Alban’s House on Drake Street.

The Paint Shop is open to RBH customers and non-customers alike, but there is an exclusive 10% discount for RBH tenant and employee members. Paint is donated by local trade outlets, contractors and through the Community RePaint network. The paint is all good quality, including top brands such as Dulux, but is available at a fraction of the price of high street retailers. Brush sets, paint trays and paint rollers are also available at great prices.

Paul Blayney, RBH HomeChoice Team Manager, said:

“Last year we sold or donated over 3,700 litres of reusable paint to customers and to local community groups, and with our new Paint Shop this year we can do even more – please visit us if you need paint for DIY and decorating projects!”
