'Rainbow Street' created by Gloucester residents

  • Report by Ken Goodwin

A road in Gloucester has been given a new lease of life thanks to multi-coloured houses painted by its residents.

Landlady Tasha Frootko persuaded the residents of St Mark Street to let her loose with a paintbrush on their homes - with the result now being christened 'Rainbow Street'.

Painting started over a year ago and now the street is unrecognisable. Tash said: "It's been really physically testing, mentally challenging but mainly hugely positive and I'd do it all over again if I could.

"I'm overwhelmed by the amount of positivity we've had for the street and it looks sensational."

The street now attracts attention from far and wide and Tash says she already has her eye on another street she wants to give the rainbow treatment.
