Gateway signs for Blue and John Crow mountains

On Monday, Jamaica will join the rest of the world in observing World Heritage Day under the theme 'The Heritage of Sport'. In commemoration of the day, the Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sports will undertake the symbolic unveiling of Gateway signs in Papine, St Andrew, and Port Antonio, Portland, leading to the Blue and John Crow mountains.

According to Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sports Olivia 'Babsy' Grange, "The unveiling of the Gateway signs in Papine and Port Antonio, which both lead to the only mixed World Heritage site within the Caribbean, the Blue and John Crow mountains, is one of several initiatives being undertaken by Jamaica in recognition of World Heritage Day."

The signs will be unveiled by Minister Grange, UNESCO representatives, and other key stakeholders. Students from educational institutions in and around Papine will also participate in the ceremony set for 8 a.m. in Papine Square.
