At some point in our lives we’ve all passed through the usually busy St Rita Steps in Paceville!… Which, unfortunately haven’t been so busy lately due to the pandemic.

The covid-19 pandemic took a heavy toll on the Paceville entertainment area, with many shops, bars and clubs being forced to temporarily close their doors.

Now the entities are making their best out of this bad situation by giving a very well-needed make over to the steps, which operation wasn’t possible before due to the heavy footfall this area used to attract.

The renovation on the steps are now very close to completion and they are already looking really fancy and have also been equipped with LED lights for better visibility during the night.

Once covid-19 pandemic ends, these steps will certainly be ready to greet the masses.
