Appeal For Services In Christ Church South Constituency
Monday, 19 April 2010 10:09
chchservicesPublic Relations Officer of the Christ Church South Constituency Council, Patrick Gollop, is calling on fellow constituents to come forward to offer their services to the Council.

"We are looking for people who will help us repair houses – carpenters, masons, labourers, tilers – these are people whom we will pay for their services," he explains.

"We are also seeking other professionals who will help with the training of our young people. Persons such as retirees and returning nationals are welcome," Gollop states.

"At the same time we want to encourage more volunteerism from among the constituents."

Gollop explains that the Council is currently building a database of persons in the Amity Lodge area to understand various needs and skills of this community.

"We will also equip areas of this community with special facilities for the "differently able.

"Working with the Council involves interfacing with a number of government agencies and associations. Getting the Council functioning at its maximum is a step-by-step process," adds Gollop, who also says the Council will have a full agenda by March next year.

Already the Council has held one of a series of town hall meetings in the St Christopher/Silver Sands areas, to ascertain the needs of this community.

A Health and Wellness Fair was also held at Southern Plaza, Oistins, to increase the awareness of proper health among constituents and to allow members to display and sell food items. Constituent Rosalind Hurley was very instrumental in the success of this fair.

The Council is also seeking to help constituents in several areas, especially families.

In conjunction with the Coastal Management team and Marine Trust, young members of the constituency are being coached and trained as tour guides.

The Graeme Hall Swamp Project is also high on the agenda. In collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Social Care the Council will seek to carry out work on this facility.

In addition, a wall at Bay Gardens, Oistins, will soon feature a fisherfolk post 1955 memorial, and with the help of Oistins fisherfolk, an enactment of the Oistins Treaty will be staged during next year's Oistins Fish Festival.

Plans are also afoot to provide the youth with the necessary equipment and to pay them as part of a debushing programme.

"We will teach them how to manage a business and themselves. Sports will also play a major role in their development. The Dover Cricket Club has now become a first premier cricket team, and so we will work with this group and others in the constituency to help further develop our young people. added Gollop.
