Signed, sealed and delivered!

President of the Barnes Hill Community Development Organization (BHCDO), Timothy Payne  and Leonard Philip, today joined Pascal Kentish of the Ministry of Labour’s Antigua and Barbuda’s Skills Training and Empowerment Programme (ABSTEP) to sign documents paving the way for a partnership which is designed to facilitate the restoration of the Barnes Hill community reservoir and development of a tourism-related park.

The initial arrangement, which also includes the World Bank, benefits the BHCDO to the tune of some EC$20,000 plus 6 months’ employment on the project for 10 individuals from the community and its immediate environs.

“This is an awesome opportunity for the BHCDO to move ahead with a very ambitious project and we ant to thank those who have worked so hard to get things going in a very positive way,” said Payne.

“It is one which will reap significant benefits to the people of the community and their neighbours not to mention Antigua ad Barbuda as a whole,” he added.
