A much-needed coat of paint heralds the new year.SHANNON INNESS February 7, 2013 4:27am
Children at Seymour Playgroup were greeted with newly painted premises when sessions resumed on Monday.
Craigieburn Bunnings employees from Seymour and Broadford visited the playgroup on January 18 to complete their community project.
Vice-president and mother Shannon Inness said Bunnings had offered to assist with the painting project after playgroup organisers had attended an information night about barbecue fundraisers at the hardware store.
‘‘The premises hasn’t been painted for over 10 years so was in desperate need of some love with fresh, new, bright colours,’’ Mrs Inness said.
‘‘Each wall is painted a different colour.’’

Mrs Inness said parents were welcome to bring their children, aged up to five years old, to playgroup this year.
‘‘You are welcome to three free visits with your child before you need to pay insurance and term fees,’’ she said.
Fees are $30 a term or $100 for the year, plus $30 for Playgroup Victoria membership and insurance or $15 concessional rate.
Seymour Playgroup will be cooking a barbecue at Bunnings in Craigieburn as a fundraiser on February 23 and May 25.
