Recovery Houses Handing Over This Afternoon

Residents of Fitzhughes whose homes were damaged or destroyed by the December 2013 floods will receive keys to their new homes this afternoon.

The keys will be handed over, during the second in a series of ceremonies being hosted by the Ministry of Housing.

The ceremony is scheduled to begin at three this afternoon.

Addresses are expected to come from Minister of Housing, Montgomery Daniel; Permanent Secretary Shirla Francis; and Chairman of the Housing and Land Development Corporation, Berrisford Philips.

Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves will deliver the feature address.

During the first ceremony last Friday, seven residents in Langley Park, whose homes were damaged or destroyed by the floods, were presented with keys to their new homes.

The third presentation ceremony will take place on Thursday June 19th at South Rivers, also from three in the afternoon.
