Facelift for The Fountain

Waiting for Video...

The top of The Fountain is to benefit from a new re-imaging project, which will spruce-up the corner of Hawkin Street and Fountain Street.

Spearheaded by community worker Jeanette Warke, the DSD Minister, Nelson McCausland, has been invited to officially launch the project, which is being funded by his department.

Describing the derelict houses at the top of The Fountain as “an absolute eyesore,” Jeanette Warke said they were an uninviting sight for those coming into The Fountain from the top end of the Protestant enclave.

“We have now got funding from the Department of Social Development and the aim of the project will be to give the houses a new look, in fact we will be taking them back to the 1950s,” she said.
