St James North Council Spreading Cheer
Monday, 19 April 2010 09:56

CHRISTMAS will be special for some constituents of St James North. That's because the members of the Constituency Council in this catchment area are currently preparing food hampers to assist some members of this community.

Council members are also working feverishly in their efforts to enhance and develop the physical aspects of this constituency and its members.

Currently they are working hand in hand with constituents to identify areas which need attention, and to discover those individuals who possess special skills.

To date the Council has embarked on a number of projects. In collaboration with the St. Vincent de Paul Society, members have repaired the home of one resident, while working solo on a number of similar projects.

Quite a few programmes are also in the pipeline. They include the establishment of a Boys' and Girls' Club, whereby young people will be taught craft, the use of proper speech, assisted with their homework, and given an opportunity to develop themselves in other areas with the help of other young people.

A clean-up programme is also in the pipeline. According to Chairman, Senator Peter Gilkes, "a beach clean-up and beautification work is being considered for the beach north of St Alban's Church, as well as the beachland adjacent to the fire station at Weston.

Gilkes, however, is seeking to work jointly with business owners and those constituents who can help the Council achieve its goals.
"The Council will be asking such persons to help financially and otherwise with the development of the community and with those constituents who need help," Gilkes said.

The additional members of the St James North Constituency Council are:
Deputy Chairman – Sonia Thompson-Alleyne
Secretary – Sandra Corbin
Treasurer – Edwin Hurley
Assistant Secretary-Treasurer – Joel Bannister
Chester Bishop
Rosalin Blenman
Anthony Cave
Juan Goodman
