Home, sweet home

Maxine Searles and her family, whose Station Hill, St Michael house was knocked off its foundation almost two weeks ago, have finally settled in to a new home.

Searles told a Barbados TODAY team following her story since it broke, that the wait was long. Nevertheless, she was satisfied that last Saturday she was able to move into a private, temporary two-bedroom house at Paddock Road, St Michael, facilitated by the Welfare Department.

“I am happy that I was finally able to move. It was hard living in the conditions after the house collapsed so coming here is a big difference.

“I moved in on Saturday morning and tried to make it look like a home the same day. I am thankful because it is much better than where I was,” said a smiling Searles.
