“I had a look at the Cotton Ground Police Station yesterday and it has come along very nicely. I can safely say the Police Station is ready to be declared opened,” said Premier Joseph Parry, while speaking this week Tuesday, (6th December, 2011), on his weekly radio program.
The opening of the station will be part of four ceremonies that will take place in Nevis before 2012, according to a release from the Island Administration.
Premier Parry stated that the Charlestown Public Market, Community Centers in Fountain and Cotton Ground and the Police Station in Cotton Ground will be opening later this month as he commented on some of the facilities.
He also gave comments on the Charlestown Market and had high praise for the construction team.
“A great job was done on the Charlestown Market and I have to commend Mr. Meredith Hendrickson and his team who did excellent work on the construction of the market,” noted the Premier.
In addition he said that the Public Market will be very modern and outfitted with refrigerators and other appliances.
During the radio programme, the Premier also announced that the Public Market will be named posthumously in honour of Mr. George Mowbray Hanley who was the Charlestown Market keeper for over 25 years.
“He was a great icon in Charlestown and I am very glad that the Market will be named after him,” concluded Premier Parry.
Meanwhile, the grand opening of the Fountain Community Center has been slated to take place on Thursday, 15th December and the Charlestown Public Market on Friday 16th December. On Saturday, 17th December, the Cotton Ground Community Center has been scheduled to be official opened and a tentative date has been set for the official opening of the Cotton Ground Police Station on Thursday, 22nd December.
