"The Petty Minded Are Happy Again"

It’ll all come out in the wash

It’ll all come out in the wash

AFTER 12 months of controversy over its colour, the repainting La Caumine à Marie Best is expected to be finished on Friday.

The building in St Ouen’s Bay – better known as the White House – was painted green in January as part of the National Trust for Jersey’s efforts to promote environmental sustainability.

The National Trust had always planned to restore the landmark cottage to white at the end of this year. Many people were opposed to the campaign, with one Islander taking their anger a step further by vandalising the building.

In May, someone defaced the house by writing ‘clean me!’ in white paint and drew smiley faces on the windows.
