PORT AUX BASQUES, NL – Af­ter a long stretch of fog, rain, wind and cold, res­i­dents of Port aux Basques were treated to warmer tem­per­a­tures on June 21.

Some took to the com­mu­nity gar­den, while oth­ers went for strolls along the board­walk with their dogs.

As re­ported on May 29, the down­town beau­ti­fi­ca­tion project was pro­vided fund­ing to im­prove the down­town core and make it more ap­peal­ing.

The am­phithe­ater has a new blue sail and rain­bow coloured flags now line the board­walk from Scott’s Cove Park to the new Ma­rine At­lantic ac­cess gate. Along Main Street and other high traf­fic roads new metal benches and multi- colour square garbage boxes of­fer a brief respite along with some pleas­ant views.

Con­struc­tion crews were spot­ted patch­ing roads in sev­eral ar­eas through­out town. Mean­while con­trac­tors have also bro­ken ground for the new mul­ti­pur­pose build­ing across from St. James El­e­men­tary in Grand Bay.
