Last week was an extremely hectic one for journalists in western Jamaica. From the Labour Day activities across the region, to the two-day 72nd Annual Joint Central Conferences of the Jamaica Police Federation, to the launch of the St James Parish Council's Adopt A Verge Programme, it was chock-full of activities.

The reporters from The Gleaner's Western Bureau were on the ball all week. Here is a little Something Extra from some of the activities covered.
