Grove Place Residents to Re-Launch Community Club June 1


Residents of Grove Place in Manchester will re-launch their community club on Sunday, June 1, at the Ebenezer Open Bible Church, beginning at 5:00 p.m.
The club was formed in the late 1950s to represent the interest of farmers, but over recent years, it has concentrated on sporting activities for young people. Since February it has broadened its membership to manage other interests in the community.
Vice President of the group, Derrick Allen told JIS News that it would now be an action body, focusing on an immediate drive to get farmers in the area to register with the Rural Agricultural Development Authority (RADA), work for the formation of a Neighbourhood Watch and explore career paths for youngsters leaving school.
“The club now consists of senior citizens, working persons, students and others. We want it to represent the entire community. After the launch on Sunday, we will have outreach events throughout the week with the HEART Trust/NTA, RADA, Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management (ODPEM), Fire Department, and Cadet Movement, with the aim of making our community more aware of developmental opportunities which exist for people,” Mr. Allen informed.
The group has more than 30 active members, and they meet every first and last Sunday of each month.
