Nominate local for a paint job

Have your say

INDEPENDENT pub landlords in South Yorkshire are being given the chance to win a £5,000 makeover for their local boozer.

The Glidden Trade Paint and a Pint competition aims to give pubs a ‘much-needed boost’. Landlords have the chance to win a transformation, plus money towards a re-opening party.

To help support local decorators, professional painters who nominate their local will also have the chance to carry out the redecoration. There are also two second place prizes of £750 of paint and three runners-up of £150 of paint.

■ Landlords and customers must state why their pub deserves a makeover in up to 30 words. Entries, along with contact details and a photo or a video of the pub, should be registered by September 30 at

■ Otherwise, post to: Glidden Trade Pub Competition, Giant’s Basin, Potato Wharf, Castlefield, Manchester, M3 4NB.
