New palm trees are to be planted in Bridgetown and new iconic garbage bins installed around the island’s main thoroughfare in a bid by the Tourism Development Corporation (TDC) to once again beautify The City.
Chairman Martin Ince made the disclosure yesterday, indicating this was being done as part of the TDC’s efforts to encourage Barbadians to take pride in their country once again, as well as in the interest of the further development of the tourism industry, which Ince stressed was “key to Barbados”.
Several potted palms were previously planted in a special TDC project that enhanced the Broad Street landscape as well as some of the minor streets of The City.
They were, however, destroyed over time, leaving large plant pots that had been misused by the public as litter bins. (GC)
