Government has awarded a local contractor an almost $50,000 contract to restore the North Sound Community Centre on Virgin Gorda.
A media release from the Ministry of Social Development said project contractor Victor Creque inked the $44,486.62 deal on September 23.
The project is now scheduled to commence on September 30 and is expected to be completed by December 31, 2019.
Works expected to be carried out on the community centre include restoring the community centre’s exterior windows and doors, kitchen cupboards, as well as its interior lighting and wall fixtures.
The project will also see the installation of outside lighting, interior and exterior painting, and cleaning of the facility’s cistern.
The North Sound Community Centre had suffered damage during hurricanes Irma and Maria back in September 2017. It was used as an emergency shelter at the time and was one of several structures impacted by the category five disasters.
