Residents of Belleplaine and its environs are breathing a small sigh of relief as work on the St Andrew Outpatients Clinic has begun after more than a year.

However, they said it was just a start as there were many other places which were closed and needed to be reopened.

“We really needed it reopened very badly because the older folk will be able to access medication instead of trying to get to Maurice Byer Polyclinic in St Peter. Now it will be within walking distance,” said Anthony Bryan, of Isolation Road.

“But the police station close and now the post office close and that will be hard for the same old folks who want their pension cheques changed. They will have to go to St Thomas or St Peter,” he added. (CA)
