Beach Beautification by CARE of Barbados – Another exercise in July
Andrew Simpson is grateful for the twenty volunteers who picked up 60 + bags (more than filling the truck loaned by Yorkshire Nurseries) from miles of beach on the east coast on Sunday 18th May.
Peter Bynoe was the volume leader with all his bags (20 +) filled and deposited on the roadside for easy collection. He then passed on his treasure capsule worth $ 20 to Ruth Hoad’s son Ted who worked on the Morgan Lewis stretch. What a guy! Big up Counterpart Caribbean at the Future Centre and The Living Room who were well represented.
A special thanks to Tom Hinds who represented Naniki with a generous batch of “coconut bakes” enjoyed with fresh lemonade & mauby after the event compliments The American Ambassador’s Democracy Fund (the main sponsors of the effort) which has also covered the cost of bags, tools, litter bins and refreshments until the end of the year. Sponsors of ongoing activities are needed as are volunteers willing to champion new environmental initiatives.
There are so many areas which need cleaning and beautification, not to mention education & public awareness to prevent degradation in the first place. We have lots of ideas for sustainability but lack necessary resources to implement.
Andrew’s scheduled another effort on July 12th at Bathsheba / Soup Bowl. To meet on the train line by High Rock at sunup.
