Mini Bermuda Homes Placed On Roundabout

December 18, 2023 | 7 Comments

The Crow Lane roundabout in Paget has been transformed into a display of traditional Bermudian charm, featuring miniature Bermuda-style homes that were created by the Department of Works and Engineering’s carpentry shop.

“This collaborative effort embodies the spirit of unity within our Ministry,” remarked Minister of Public Works Lt. Col. David Burch about a Ministry initiative to spread Christmas cheer.

A Government spokesperson said, “The holiday season has come alive with a touch of traditional Bermudian charm at the Crow Lane roundabout in Paget, courtesy of the efforts of the Ministry of Public Works’ Departments collaborating to bring festive joy to the community.

“This initiative, spearheaded by the Department of Parks, showcases the essence of a Bermudian Christmas by installing wooden miniature homes adorning this roundabout.”

Minister Burch added: “Our teams’ combined talents and dedication have resulted in these beautiful displays that aim to spread joy and warmth during this special time of year.”

The Government spokesperson said, “The displays, crafted and painted by the skilled hands of the Department of Works and Engineering’s carpentry shop, reflect the Island’s unique architectural heritage.

“The brainchild of the talented craftspeople at Fort St. Catherine, the intricate design and construction of these miniature homes symbolise the unity and teamwork that define Bermuda’s cultural fabric.

“The Ministry extends its gratitude to all involved, acknowledging the hard work and commitment that went into bringing this vision to life.

“For more information and to catch a glimpse of these delightful installations, the public is encouraged to visit the Crow Lane roundabout throughout the holiday season.”

    Very cute.
    They did a lot of the planting work on Saturday. A 10-man crew at double time…
    Burnt over $5k in that one day, one roundabout, not to mention the days prior and the little houses, etc.

    Not to mention the excavation of the soil, trucking it away, “sifting” it, filling the bottom half with rubble and trucking back a top half of soil.

    Sure do wonder what happened to the rest of the premium soil!!

    What a use of OUR tax dollars. Do we really wonder why we are in such debt and a crumbling infrastructure?

  6. Confused at Christmas says:

    This is a holiday display? Couldn’t add some lights or poinsettias or something? Looks like an expensive half attempt to me. Shucks could have used those “Free LED light bulbs” lol, SOMETHING!

    In other news shoutout to the government trying to be proactive when it comes to Russian emergency flights. Instead of idiotically reacting after the fact. Although Russia has been on the sanction list for QUITE SOME TIME NOW!!!! But hey….better late than never right? Just make sure your “border protection” department is informed in writing of the plan strategy. Dont leave it to the egotistical idiots in management there

    The next election can’t come fast enough.
    Santa can u bring us a better government?!

  7. You know…all we have to do now is find small people to live in them….subliminally and conversely this is a bit small minded and under thought and underfoot…but it has made me realise we really don’t have to worry about the future…England is si hours ahead of us let’s just call them to find out….it all makes sense now …
