BARBADOS (Naked Departure) — ST. LUCY YOUTHS — Naked, I am speaking on behalf of the youths in St Lucy. People wonder why the youths in St Lucy are becoming so caught up in crime but it has to do with many factors, like for instance: no sporting facilities and no jobs available for school leavers.
All the focus is on central and southern areas plus the only area that gets attention to from government is Checker Hall. Even the people who have constantly put in MP Denis Kellman, nothing is ever done for them and right now people have had enough. The youths are frustrated. We have no outlet or guidance. One community center in Rockfield which stands idle and unlit hard court no place or recreation facilities unless you travel from Hope Road or Pie Corner or Josey Hill and venture to Checker Hall.
When we ask the MP for assistance, we get a blind eye. The guys in Pie Corner and Josey Hill have been asking for football goal bars for years, even a lighted pasture, but all fall on deaf ears. Youth groups have given up because of lack of funding and assistance. It’s even hard to get land to do agriculture since Guyanese seem to get preference on the land lease project plus as you would know Naked, the north needs activities and development so things like this has led to a breakdown.
Why is it that Peter Phillips does more than Denis Kellman who I know reads Naked Departure and also many other big heads in St Lucy. Anonymous
