THE?BEAUTIFY BARBADOS programme seems to be coming to an end – at least as a Government project.
Last Friday, 16 of the 58 workers who have been cleaning the highway from Grantley Adams International Airport in Christ Church to Warrens, St Michael, were given letters informing them that the programme would be closed on March 31.
The remaining 42 workers are on holiday and reports indicated that they would be informed through the mail.
The majority of employees have been working with the environmental programme since its inception in 1998 and several of them expressed dissatisfaction with how they have been sent home.
The letters, which they were handed on Friday and which were signed by director Steve Devonish, simply said: “I have been directed to inform you that the sub-programme 0400 Beautify Barbados closes on March 31, 2014.”
