The state of the area around The Valley Resource Centre in The Glebe, St George, has become a cause for concern by users of the facility.

The waist-high grass, neglected plants and garbage in the bush belie the fact the centre is located next to the parish post office and an automatic banking machine and across from the police station. Classes and programmes are still being held there.

Resident Kenmore Brathwaite said it looked like a place for grazing animals.“This is supposed to be a lawn, not a grass piece for goats and sheep. How can this be a community centre? Somebody is not doing their job,” he said.

Cuthbert Nicholls said the situation was “not commendable” and could be a breeding ground for pests and vectors.(CA)
