B&Q

B&Q will soon open the doors to its newly revamped home improvement store in New Malden. To celebrate, B&Q New Malden will host a day of family fun on Saturday 14th January, including a special guest appearance from local rugby legend Nick Easter, who played No. 8 for Harlequins and England in international rugby union.

At the launch event the local sports star, known fondly by fans as “Minty”, will be testing out his DIY skills against B&Q New Malden’s store team. Customers will get the chance to see the sporting star getting mucky off the pitch for a change as store staff challenge him try his hand at potting plants in the garden centre, tussle with wallpaper and cause a ruckus with a paintbrush. He will also be on hand to meet, greet and sign autographs for fans. Plus, there will also be plenty to keep the family entertained throughout the day, including a balloon modeller, face painter, stilt walkers and a craft station.

B&Q New Malden has been completely revamped to offer customers a variety of new products and features, including a new paint desk, a new kitchens and bathrooms display, more visual ranges of flooring and tiles, and a new café with windows overlooking the A3 and Burlington Road.

Lee Bayliss, Unit Manager at B&Q New Malden, said: “We’re all looking forward to welcoming customers to our newly revamped store. We’re ready to show off our new look to New Malden’s residents and inspire them to start a new home improvement project under the guidance of our expert advice. We’re all really looking forward to Saturday’s family fun day and, of course, testing Nick with our DIY challenges!”

Nick Easter added: “I’m really looking forward to helping celebrate the launch of the newly revamped B&Q New Malden store. I’m not sure that my DIY skills can beat the in store experts but it will be great to get some advice from them to make my own home improvement projects easier.”

The B&Q family fun day will take place on Saturday, 14th January from 10am to 3pm, with Nick Easter in store from 10:30 -12:30pm, at B&Q New Malden, Shannon Commercial Centre, Beverley Way, New Malden, Surrey, KT3 4PT.

Culture vultures have the chance to enjoy great art by some potential masters of tomorrow at the Sutton Youth Art Exhibition on display in Sutton Central Library.

The Arts Network Sutton exhibition runs from today through to Tuesday February 9, and will highlight some of the finest work from Sutton secondary schools’ most talented youngsters.

A ceremony featuring Lord Graham Tope will open the exhibition at 6.30pm tonight in the Europa Gallery on the ground floor of Sutton’s Central Library. Entry will be free to any members of the public who wish to come along and admire the young people’s artwork at any point during the exhibition’s run.

Cllr Jill Whitehead, Chair of the Environments & Neighbourhoods Committee at Sutton Council, said:

“The Sutton Youth Art Exhibition is one of my annual highlights. Art is something we can all admire and enjoy, and seeing some of the talent that our local young people possess is humbling.

“I’d like to encourage anyone who can make it to come down to the Europa Gallery while the exhibition is open – I guarantee that you will be pleasantly surprised.”
