Residents of Ulster Spring and adjacent communities in Trelawny will soon have access to an improved library, following rehabilitation works at the facility this Labour Day.

Falmouth’s Mayor, Councillor Garth Wilkinson told JIS News that approximately $100,000 has been allocated to carry out repairs at the library.

The Mayor noted that the Ulster Spring Branch Library, which is the parish project, is in dire need of the repairs. The works will therefore include the installation of windows and doors; mounting of additional shelves; and interior and exterior painting, as well as landscaping.

Meanwhile, Mayor Wilkinson informed that the Clarks Town and Wakefield Police stations are two other projects that will receive attention in the parish on Labour Day.

Mayor Wilkinson said that unlike in previous years, the Trelawny Parish Council will not be seeking to fill “the 150 projects quota”, as required by the Labour Day Secretariat, but will be identifying “10 or 20 projects that we will concentrate on across the parish.”

He therefore urged all Non-Government Organisations, service clubs and other private interest groups to work on those projects identified.

This Mayor Wilkinson said would ensure that the quality of the works will be worthwhile, even after Labour Day.

Labour Day 2014, will be observed on May 23 under the theme, ‘Take a stand… Beautify our Land’.
