Errol Barrow Memorial Park has new life, thanks to SOL’s Children Matter Most Beautification Project
SOL’s latest round of interns left a very high benchmark by refurbishing the playground at the Errol Barrow Memorial Park.
Shola Mapp, Marketing Assistant at SOL revealed how the Project is an annual component of SOL’s internship programme running since 2012. On this occasion, the 11 interns, who are between 18 to 24, during their 3-month-stint were charged with helping to raise funds for the Sayers Court Children’s Home and carrying out upgrades such as the refurbishment of the park.
On hand for the day’s Ceremony, which also included the distribution of gifts and treats to campers from the All Stars Camp who were among the first to enjoy the upgraded play park, was General Manager of the National Conservation Commission (NCC), Keith Neblett. He too commended the interns for their efforts in addition to expressed gratitude to SOL.
The NCC Manager continued, “we have 55 parks and I just want to send a message to SOL that certainly, if they have the resources available they are another 54 that we would welcome them to come and help us but we appreciate the gesture and we do hope that we can have a good relationship with them and that we can continue the good work.”
