The residents and visitors to the beach at St. David’s Bay, Castle Bruce will soon see improvement on the Bayfront thanks to a grant from the Global Environment Facility Small Grant Project (GEF SGP).
Recently a Memorandum of Agreement was signed between the GEF SGP Office for Project Services and Castle Bruce Tourism Association Inc.
The grant, once received, will go towards the first phase of the bay front enhancement program planned by the Association.
Programs under the grant include: Environment education and awareness for the community, replanting of trees along the bayfront to the river mouth and to Lia river, landscaping, construction of two sanitary facilities, a gazebo, peace park and two picnic areas, a tarish and pebble path to the river mouth, benches along the bay front to the rivermouth extending to Lia river, barbeque stands, craft and food stalls, berth for hikers to rest, tourist guide training, among others.
On Wednesday the local tourism organization met with Parliamentary Representative Johnson Drigo and Village Council for an on site visit at the Bayfront.
Drigo and the Chairlady of the Council Angelica Gasper were shown a draft design planned for the area.
Both Drigo and Gasper have pledged their support to the Castle Bruce Tourism Association Inc to make the project a reality.
A stakeholders meeting, which will include relevant government Departments and Agencies, is scheduled for Friday, March 27 2015 from 3:00 pm at the Sea Breeze Inn, Bayfront, Castle Bruce.
