In an exclusive interview with the president, Marcello Agard, he said the C.U.E.T is not just a community group. “It is a team! Yes it’s a group of persons who have joined forces to uplift our community, but too often as in the past, we’ve seen groups formed and not lasting too long,” Agard stated.
“C.U.E.T was formed to inspire community spirit and togetherness and to uplift the community through various programs and activities,” the president added.
The Community Enhancement Upliftment Team was formed after its members participated in a sixteen (16) week capacity building course, organized by BNTF (Basic Needs Trust Fund) and the Department of Community and Social Affairs.
One of the most recent events organized by the team, as referred to by Agard, was the honouring the two Eldest persons in Old road, held on Sunday 17th October.
The two citizens honoured were Miss Henerietta “Miss Henny” Julius, who made 100 years in April of this year and Mr. George “Georgie” Wigley, who made 90 years old.
Other activities included a cleanup campaign for the Old Road community. The president said he was pleased with the results and hailed the events as a success.
