Five more houses in the city of Roseau are now much more colourful, after being subjected to a serious paint job under an initiative described as the Roseau Paint-a-thon.
Volunteer teams and qualified painters were involved in the June 2-3 exercise aimed at brightening up the city.
It’s the second year running that that Discover Dominica Authority exercise has targeted specific houses for a proper paint job, with these houses given a makeover at no cost to their owners.
The initiative, supported by the National Bank of Dominica, Josephine Gabriel and Company, and Harris Paints Dominica, aims at beautifying buildings in the capital with historic and architectural appeal.
The painting exercise formed part of the island’s annual Tourism Awareness Month activities.
The painted houses are located on Cork Street and Hillsborough Street.
