Back in August we launched our Shed Load of Paint Competition where one lucky winner had the chance to win £1,000 worth of paint! We asked all our Proud Decorators to share with us some of their exterior painting jobs on social media, and we were not disappointed with the amount of amazing work happening in outdoor spaces. Unfortunately, there could only be one winner, but we are pleased to announce Keith Richardson of Goring Beach Huts won the competition!
Competition winner Keith Richardson of Goring Beach Huts
Keith has been looking after Beach Huts along the Goring coastline from Ferring all the way to Shoreham since 2004, then making the business his full-time work since 2011. Now Keith works with a team of skilled carpenters, decorators and patio layers to breathe life into Beach Huts old and new. Unfortunately, during lockdown, the team were unable to work for three months but a combination of glorious weather and people investing in beach huts has meant they have never been busier. Working on a beach presents a lot of challenges however; such as the weather, business of the beach and pesky insects!
It is also vital the right products are used for the beach huts as they require constant maintenance. As they are so close to the sea it is recommended that they are painted externally every year. Due to the thickness and finish of the wood used for beach huts and the condensation that can occur, Keith’s top choice is Albany Gloss as he says: “Albany does exactly what it says on the tin and it’s the best value paint there is, I have used Albany ever since starting the business back in 2004”
‘Thank you so much to Brewers for the prize, it is greatly appreciated!.’
Keith and his wife couldn’t believe it when they saw the message saying they had won the competition and couldn’t wait to tell the branch staff in the Worthing store! Keith doesn’t usually enter competitions, but A Shed Load of Paint was one not to be missed and he was so happy to have won! Now he has entered our latest competition for a holiday to Lapland and intends on entering as many competitions as he can with Brewers.
