Alldaypropertymaintenance was instructed by lancing borough council to re-decorate the bandstand on lancing beach green for the commemoration of world war 1. We were asked to use our painter and decorator skills to paint the roof poppy red with black scollops . We had to decorate the upstands and face white,And then had to stencil poppies onto the upstandsIMG_0258 IMG_0246

Once all preparation had been completed when the began decorating ,Starting with the roof which was painted poppy red, and then we had to tape the shape of scallops so we could paint black lines around so they looked like poppy leafs. Then we painted the underside poppy red aswell with a black roundel in the maiddle to resemble a poppy. All upstands were then decorated white. I have been a painter and decorator for nearly 20 years but have never stencilled poppies before, So even though it was quite a teadious decorating  job,  the end product was definitely worth it and especially as it was for such a great occasion.
