On Tuesday this week, Marketing Manager of the company Fitz Huggins announced that LIME will be working more closely with the community group JEMS and the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Taxi Drivers Association.

Huggins indicated at Tuesday’s press conference that the company would work with the Association to clean up various popular tourist sites.

The association, more than 80 members strong, has also received uniforms from the company.

The drivers, who are considered an important point of contact for tourists, will now offer visitors the rental of LIME cell phones for the duration of their visits.

The foreigners will also be encouraged to take advantage of the various services available from LIME.

Vice President of the Association Winston “Pops” Morgan said that it is the group’s hope to continue its work, and build a great relationship with LIME with this initiative and more.

Meanwhile, the company has pledged its support to the JEMS Community Organization in a number of its endeavors this year.

General Manager of LIME Angus Steele indicated that both organizations have worked together in the past, and this year, they will be taking their association further by engaging in mainly health and environment based events.

JEMS president Andrew Simmons indicated that some of the events include World Earth Day activities on April 22, World Environment day on June 5, and September 22, which is international clean up day.

JEMS was provided with free Internet at their headquarters / day care centre, in order to facilitate a number of computer training programmes.

Steele indicted that these initiatives embarked on by LIME are part of the company’s community service policy.
