An empty property in Swanley got a partial make-over by a group of tenants recently.
Tony, a decorator with Ian Williams, demonstrated the best way to prepare walls and woodwork, as well as giving some valuable top tips. Attendees learned the best way to wallpaper around a plug socket, which paintbrush to use depending on what they’re painting and what ‘soaking time’ means. Louis, West Kent's Lead Maintenance Engineer, also showed tenants how to fix a range of minor plumbing issues round the home.
"I would highly recommend the painting and decorating workshop. I learned so much and took away loads of tips" Audrey, an attendee at the workshop.
