Residents of communities between Sandy Bay and Fancy were on hand last weekend, as General Manager of LIME, Leslie Jack, and members of staff dropped in at the Owia Government School for the second in the company’s town hall meeting series.
The venue was packed to capacity, as once again Jack and community leaders exchanged ideas on how LIME could fulfil its corporate responsibilities in North Windward.
Jack promised to provide Blackberry smartphones to teachers at three learning institutions.
Education and sports development took priority for the community members, who highlighted the issue of transportation for students travelling from Fancy to the Sandy Bay Secondary School.
Jack learned that students who were not able to afford the bus fare, and were not able to get a ride on the lone subsidized bus trip to school, would most often miss classes for the day.
He promised that he would look into the matter and see where LIME can play a beneficial role.
The construction of seating and washrooms at the playing field in Owia was also an area of concern for residents, and the residents called for top athletes from the area to be given LIME ambassadorial status, and suggested that a billboard in their honour be installed at the bus shed that is to be constructed.
Jack gave a commitment that the entire LIME team will turn out to help on the day that construction of the bus shed begins.
The meeting, which was once again broadcast live on NICE Radio, was also graced by the presence of the LIME Soca Dans, who along with Jack and his team interacted with those attendees.
Residents are also going to be treated to remarkable deals on phones, as well as free Internet service.
Meanwhile, LIME made good on the fans and soccer balls, promised to community leaders during their first town hall meeting in Barrouallie.
Last Monday, Jack handed over fans for use at the Barrouallie Community Centre, and soccer balls for use by youth in the community.
The fans were received by Alexia Charles while Robert Chambers accepted the balls.
