RSVGPF gives Redemption Sharpes community bath much needed facelift

The community bath in Redemption Sharpes, which was in a state of disrepair, received some much needed repairs to its roof, walls and floor as part of Police Week 2018.

The work on the community bath was one of several community outreach projects implemented by the Royal St Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force during the week of activities, done with a view of forging a closer working relationship with the general public.

“With the help of a few generous friends from the business community, the officers attached to the Police Carpenter Shop along with prisoners from Her Majesty’s Prison and other members of the Sharpes community totally repaired the Community Bath. The roof was repaired with new galvanize sheets, the interior walls of the bath were power-washed, painted and tiled. A double washing sink was constructed on the outside for persons to wash their clothing,” a release from the police said.

The exterior walls of the bath were adorned with mural paintings to beautify and improve the aesthetic of the area.

The community bath will be handed over to the community on Sunday, June 17 at a ceremony scheduled to begin at 4:30 pm. Prior to the official handing over ceremony there will be a football match between a Commissioner of Police 11 versus a Sharpes 11 as the lawmen and the residents of Sharpes battle in friendly rivalry in the name of peace, cooperation and partnership.
