$300M worth of development projects for Region 2

first_imgSavings of almost $300 million by the Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) administration have been reinvested into realising a number of transformational projects across the Region, to the benefit of residents.According to Regional Executive Officer (REO) Rupert Hopkinson, the savings were made possible through prudent resource management and vigilance by the Regional Administration in 2017.Works continue on the Anna Regina Health CentreThe projects realised from the ground-breaking achievement are a new boat landing for students and teachers at the Liberty Nursery and Primary School, a bus shed at Dartmouth, a fence at Unity Park, a seating area at Cotton Field and renovation and extension of the Anna Regina Health Centre.Currently, there are 46 pupils attending the Liberty Primary School, some 18 miles down the Pomeroon River. Headteacher Pansy Garraway-Allen said the new school’s landing was extremely necessary.“Previously, the situation was very bad. It was almost a threat to any person who would have used the landing. The lower part of the stelling, some parts were rotted, a few threaders from the step were missing because the foundation was no more. … At times we had to choose spots to step on to avoid going underground in any serious state. It was also not good enough for the students. Many times, we had to tutor the children, guiding them where to walk and avoid any sort of running on it,” Garraway-Allen explained.The newly-extended landing is a boon for the female staff, the Headteacher continued, since “before during the spring tide in the mornings, the tide would be rather low causing some trouble to us. The flats were very far out and the boats in which we travel to school are large and when we get to school, we would normally have to stick our skirts in the tights and pull boat ropes to get up to the stelling which was very strenuous to us as females.” According to Garraway-Allen, the students were also forced to step from one boat to another to reach the landing.The REO said the decision to do the work was influenced mainly by the pleas of the Headteacher and the threat the dilapidated facility posed to students and teachers alike.“Because of the danger and imminent threat to life and limb, we decided that we must have this thing done. The beautiful thing is that we had savings.I am elated to know that we were able to rescue the situation at Liberty. It is a good job done not only for Liberty but for the Region as well,” Hopkinson explained.last_img read more

LAMBERT: SHAY WILL FACE BATTLE TO RETAIN NO1 SPOT AT VILLA

first_imgSHAY Given won’t be Aston Villa’s automatic No1 goalkeeper next season, new boss Paul Lambert has warned.The former Celtic legend has resigned Brad Guzan who was initially released at the end of last season after spending four years at Villa Park.However, it appears the 27-year-old will agree to a new deal with the Midlands club, to compete with Given for the goalkeeper spot, with Lambert hinting that it would ultimately hinge on who performed best in pre-season.“It’s near. I know [Guzan] has always had that stigma of being the No.2 behind some really good goalkeepers,” Lambert said. “But when you come back at the start of the season nobody knows what’s going to happen and it depends on whoever does well.”Lifford man Shay made 34 appearances last season – American Guzan did make several good appearances for the Midlands club when Shay was injured. LAMBERT: SHAY WILL FACE BATTLE TO RETAIN NO1 SPOT AT VILLA was last modified: July 10th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:LAMBERT: SHAY WILL FACE BATTLE TO RETAIN NO1 SPOT AT VILLAlast_img read more
