SALFORD DECORATORS X FACTOR IRLAM PUB COMP
 

Star date: 12th May 2012

TIGER MOTH PUB IN IRLAM LAUNCHES MAKEOVER COMP FOR PAINTERS…

The Tiger Moth pub in Irlam has won a £2000 makeover prize in a national `Paint and a Pint' competition and is holding an X Factor style ideas day next Wednesday 16th May for professional painters and decorators who want to do the job. 

Rather than just get anyone in to tart the place up, owners Eileen and Seamus McCallion want their locals to choose potential painters.

Full details here…


The Tiger Moth pub in Irlam recently won a well deserved £2000 makeover prize for  its "remarkable sense of community spirit and in particular how it rallied round to support many of those caught up in the Irlam gas blast in November 2010".

The pub hosted the bikers' Toy Run (see here and see here) in aid of the gas blast victims and is always hosting wild stuff to help top causes. So when Tiger Moth owners Eileen and Seamus McCallion heard they had won the makeover, it was never going to be a normal contract…

"We were delighted to win the 'Paint and a Pint' competition and be awarded a £2,000 makeover, but rather than just go off and do it, we wanted to allow our loyal locals a chance to have an input in how best to redecorate" says Seamus.

 "We came up with the novel approach of holding an X-Factor style open day, and we are calling on painters and decorators to come in and get a real feel for the place and the locals and together we can decide who to choose to do our makeover" he adds "We won't expect any painters and decorators to sing for us, but they can give it a go if they fancy it. Who knows, they might even get more work providing live music at night!"

The open day at the Tiger Moth pub will take place this Wednesday 16th May  between 3pm and 5pm, where potential painters and decorators can put their makeover ideas to a team of locals.

Any professional painter and decorator can take part but must register interest in advance by emailing full contact details to gliddentrade@tangerinepr.com

The `Paint and a Pint' competition was set up by Glidden Trade paints which is also giving colour and paint advice from its experts and contributing towards a re-opening party.
