Taxi Association joins in clean-up campaign

Thanks to the efforts of the Taxi Drivers Association, the Questelles beach was given a facelift last Saturday.

Villagers came together with members of the association and grabbed rakes and shovels to clean the beach, which is usually a hub for entertainment in that area{{more}}.

President of the Taxi Drivers Association Angus Martin said that as part of World Coastal clean-up day, they picked the beach as the one they wanted to adopt and help rise to perfection as one of the most exotic black sand beaches in the Caribbean.

Martin said they recognize that a lot of work still has to be done and requires the help of everyone. He said as part of their clean up campaign, they teamed up with the Forestry Division and the Solid Waste Management Unit. These organizations intend to help plant trees, build sheds and place signs, where necessary.

He added: “It is a just a special venture by the association to give back to the community and help to develop it, however possible.”

Martin urged users of the beach to dispose of their garbage properly and take care of the facilities, since persons also make a livelihood there.

Besides Questelles, Martin stated that other projects are in the pipeline for other beaches and areas around the country.

The next clean up effort will continue at the beach on October 28th. (KW)
