The monies expended did come for Council’s coffers.

The Council has commenced a programme to reclaim its verges, parapets and other open spaces in Georgetown.The Council is working assiduously to clean and clear all recreational parks and grounds under its Control.

Many parks and other recreational faculties in Georgetown have been neglected for many years because of lack of funds. Also, some of the recreational facilities were handed over to community groups for management, over the years many of these groups haveeither became defunct or dysfunctional,thus the grounds were not  cleaned and maintained.

The Council recognises the need for restoration of all play groundsand parks. The provision of recreational ground in various communities has a number of social, economic and health benefits for the populace. The parks and community grounds promote social cohesion and encouragesyouth involvement in sport.Also, a well-kept park   in a community increases property value in. Town Clerk of Georgetown Royston King said “Green Volunteer Corps gives citizens the opportunity to be a part of the restoration and transformation process in the City”. The Council has resuscitated its sport and culture group they had was dormant for many years.
