Minister redefines Silver Hill block
The 12 Guage block in Silver Hill, Christ Church, will now be known as the 12 Step block.
So said Minister of Youth and Community Empowerment Adrian Forde who spoke to the media during a tour of the Silver Hill community and the launch of his Building Block project.
“There are 12 steps of redefining and redeveloping this block, and they have started the first step today by being here and putting their creative thoughts and actions [together], that we are going into this ministry to initiate,” he said.
He added the project would encompass the length and breadth of Barbados and would continue over the next couple of months.
“The blocks must become business centres, and areas of excellence; they must become idyllic in their nature and refine the community as a spot to go and have a Sunday lunch.
“We are going to do a total beautification of the societies. We understand the scourge of violence, and the only way we can tackle it is if we have the country behind us,” he explained.
Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley also toured the block near Quimby’s Shop, Bush Hall Yard Gap, St Michael, as part of the Building Blocks Project. (RA)
