    An empty property in Swanley got a partial make-over by a group of tenants recently.

    Seven residents tried their hand at painting and wallpapering, at our second successful painting and decorating workshop.

    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.

    I would highly recommend the painting and decorating workshop. I learned so much and took away loads of tips"

    Residents at the painting and decorating workshop

    These four-hour workshops aim to help tenants feel more confident about decorating their home to make it look and feel fresher. All of the residents were given a starter kit to put their new skills into practice, which included a paint tray and paintbrushes.

    It wasn’t all about painting and decorating, our residents were also given practical plumbing advice such as what to do if you have a leak, where all the main valves are located and how to pressurise a boiler. Louis, Lead Maintenance Engineer with iNHomes, our in-house repairs team offered advice to help prevent damage to the home in the case of a leak.

    The day was a great success and we are planning another one later in the year.
