Government allocates $4m for Labour Day projects
The Government has allocated some $4 million for the National Labour Day activity and the main parish projects across the island.
The funds will be used to improve and upgrade recreational sites, parks and play areas for children in keeping with the theme: ‘Labour of Love: Nurturing our Children’.
Acting Principal Director for Culture and Creative Industries in the Ministry of Youth and Culture, Dr Janice Lindsay, told JIS News that the Parish Councils will receive $2 million to assist with the parish projects.
The remainder of the money will go towards rehabilitation of the Rudolph Elder Park in Morant Bay, St Thomas, which is the designated National Labour Day Project this year.
