The meetings, according to a Nevis Island Administration (NIA) press release), are being organised by the Nevis Reformation Party-led government.
Leader of the party and Premier of Nevis, Joseph Parry said it was an important exercise for the NIA.
“Having dialogue and engaging the public is important for the NRP-led Government, as we want the input of the residents so the government can get to know the needs of the community,” said Premier Parry.
The meetings are chaired by constituency representatives and Ministers of Government and each constituent is asked to indicate their priority and interest.
So far meetings have been held in the villages of Bath, Brown Hill, Cherry Gardens and Barnes Ghaut. Upcoming meetings have been scheduled for Wednesday, 20th April at the Mission Church in Cotton Ground at 7:00 p.m. and on Tuesday, 26th April at the Community Center in Butlers at 7:00 p.m. Other areas to be visited are Gingerland, Church Ground and Upper St. Johns.
In addition to talking to residents in the community there has been a major effort to keep in closer touch with the young people of Nevis. The Government has met with the NRP Youth Arm, students of the Nevis Sixth Form College and recently hosted a Youth Forum which was attended by at least 120 young people from throughout Nevis. At every occasion the youths put forward their needs, comments, questions and interests.
