Telecommunications provider LIME moved its town hall meeting into Georgetown last weekend.
The Georgetown Parish Hall was the venue for the meeting held on Saturday, which saw LIME senior management, staff, and community members identifying ways in which the company can partner with groups to assist on the development of the area.
General Manager Leslie Jack, as in the previous meetings in Owia and Barrouallie, made assurances to show his company’s commitment to helping in the community’s development.
Jack promised LIME mobile phones to a group of women involved in the poultry farming industry.
Their phone plans would allow them to keep in contact with each other through unlimited calls, as well as help them to secure clients and customers for their fledgling enterprise.
Other areas of assistance for the women in their business were also discussed, with further discussions to follow.
Community members and groups also highlighted the need for assistance in refurbishing the Georgetown Government School, the placing of garbage disposal units in strategic areas, sponsorship of a football tournament, and a special request by Father Marcel for the a stove to be supplied to assist in the parish’s feeding programme.
Jack promised that he and his company would do their best to assist in the areas mentioned, and that he would call other partners on board to assist.
To further said that both he and LIME are commitment to working along with communities, in order to play their part in the development of St Vincent and the Grenadines, one community at a time.
The next LIME Town Hall Meeting takes place on Saturday at the Questelles Adult and Continuing Education Centre, at 4 p.m.
Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrected stated that the next LIME town hall meeting takes place on Thursday, rather than Saturday, the correct day.
