North Side, Grand Cayman, December 17, 2015– Christmas is in full bloom at the North Side Civic Centre, thanks to the generous donations of the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park and the Tourism Attraction Board!

Ezzard Miller who confirmed that;

“The plants will be used by the Christmas work crew for landscaping around the Craddock Ebanks Civic Center and the Disa Brown Health Clinic.” – D. Ezzard Miller, MLA

“to get this area landscaped and now the Botanic Park and the TAB have made it possible. On behalf of the people of North Side we would like to thank the Botanic Park and the TAB for their generous donation.” – D. Ezzard Miller, MLA

The landscaping is scheduled to be completed today, December 17, 2015.
