The Ministry of Community Development’s St. Patrick West district office will host its inaugural Clean and Beautification Project at Festival Square, Mahaica, Point Fortin on Wednesday February 23, 2011 at 10.00 am. The event will be held under the theme, “Plant a Tree, Beautify your Community.”
Approximately 150 trees (fruits and flowers) will be distributed to community groups in Mahaica in an effort to show them the importance of beautifying their offices and homes. Officers from St. Patrick West will also visit other rural communities in the district to encourage residents to clean and beautify their surroundings.
The campaign is being undertaken through the incorporation of groups currently participating in the Prime Minister’s Beautification Competition (formerly the Environmental Sanitation Competition).
Other government agencies including the Forestry Division are also expected to attend tomorrow’s event and distribute plants.
