Some 130 civil servants turned out to six locations across to clean those neighbourhoods in advance of the holidays, as part of the of Commerce Christmas Cleanup. Meanwhile a further 15 civil servants helped to cleanup Cayman Brac.

Deputy Governor Franz Manderson joined the West Bay team that cleared Boatswain’s Bay and .

The George Town crew had the largest turnout, with some 65 volunteers. Veteran GT Primary School Principal Marie Martin led a group of civil servants, students and PTA members that covered roads and areas surrounding the school.

team leader Crosby Solomon said civil servants were motivated to sign up for the project because community service was built into their organizational culture.

Other team leaders were:

West Bay – Zeta Bodden

Bodden Town – (co-leader) Janice MacLean

Savannah – Tara Bush and Lauren Knight.

North Sound Gardens – Brenda Dawkins

North Side – Debra Broderick

Cayman Brac – Ernie Scott

Grand Cayman crews delivered 30 bags of recyclable items to local recycling company Junk.

The Civil Service previously partnered with the Chamber of Commerce for the Earth Day Cleanup earlier this year. Both projects were organized by the Portfolio of the Civil Service. (GIS)
