FOR MANY PEOPLE Multiple Sclerosis is a lifelong disability, but for Mark Alleyne it cannot stop him from his work.

The 52-year-old Hackleton, St John resident joined other members of his community to help debush the popular tourist attraction, Hackleton Cliff. Even without Government backing, Alleyne and his group said they were determined to return the spot to a more attractive, tourist friendly destination.

Group organiser Roger Moore explained how they became frustrated with the broken promises from Government over the years to clean the spot, and so they did for themselves what the Government didn’t do. (AD)
