A total of 65 projects have so far been registered with the St. Mary Labour Day Committee, as preparations for Labour Day in the parish get into high gear.
Parish Manager for the Social Development Commission (SDC), in St. Mary, Janet Rose-Bryan, said the projects include road repairs, the cleaning-up of communities, the refurbishing of Government buildings, the painting of basic schools and the bushing of roadways.
The parish project will be the beautification of Port Maria, with special emphasis on Hudson Street, Stennet Street, and the Trinity area of the town.
Mrs. Rose Bryan said the registered projects are spread across various communities of the parish, adding that they are being spearheaded by a wide cross-section of community organisations, including church groups, youth organisations, parent teachers associations, police youth clubs and citizens associations.
She explained that the parish project will be spearheaded by the St. Mary Parish Council, in partnership with the St. Mary Chamber of Commerce, and pointed out that the work to be carried out will involve the planting of trees, the planting of roadside barriers, the painting of no parking signs and the bushing of roadways.
Mrs. Rose-Bryan said that every effort will be made to finish the work on Labour Day, and that projects not completed on the day will continue with the objective of bringing them to a successful conclusion as early as possible.
