Front row: Rob Armstrong, Mitie, Simon Tullock, Coast & Country, Emma Alexander, Crown Paint Westfield Farm in Dormanstown has been given a much-needed facelift thanks to staff from facilities management company, Mitie and Coast & Country.

Westfield Farm is a Grade II Listed community training and resource centre, owned by Coast & Country. The Farm offers work hubs, guidance, training and support for people trying to get into work.

As part of the company’s social value initiative, Mitie’s commercial decorating team welcomed the chance to help Coast & Country with the refurbishment of Westfield Farm. Crown Paints, which took part in the original restoration of the building in 2012, supplied materials to the project.

The areas repainted by Mitie included Westfield Farm’s ICT suite, reception area, hallway, kitchen, training room and library. The Coast & Country team focused on refreshing the building’s external paintwork.

Simon Tullock, Repairs and Maintenance Senior Operations Manager at Coast & Country said: “Coast & Country has a commitment to support and improve our communities, and that includes improving our own facilities and services when it is required.

“We have pledged to work with businesses that share our values, and I am grateful for the hard work and support shown by our in-house painting team, Mitie and Crown on this project.”

Mike Reed, Business Development Manager at Mitie said: “It is so important for Mitie to invest in both charity initiatives and community causes. Westfield Farm is a service that has proven to be invaluable to the people who use it, so we were delighted to help with its redecoration.

“We look forward to continuing our partnership with Coast & Country, and any ventures we can collaborate on in the future.”
