President assists Belladrum youth group

Georgetown, GINA, January 24, 2006

Youths of Belladrum, West Coast Berbice, Region Five (Mahaica/Berbice) will soon have access to improved recreational facilities with the help of President Bharrat Jagdeo.
The President committed to providing $2M for raising the Belladrum Community Centre ground and repairing of the centre’s pavilion when he visited the ground on January 22 accompanied by the youths in the area.

At a community meeting, the youths told President Jagdeo that the centre has been neglected for sometime by the local authorities. They also alleged that the Neighbourhood Democratic Council (NDC) has done substandard work on the playground’s fence.

“I am not here to do a post-mortem or to lay blame on who is right or wrong, what I will do is give you some money to fix the ground so that the young people could have a proper recreational facility,” the President said.
