The North Leeward community hosted a luncheon for several senior citizens on the southern end of North Leeward on Sunday, December 11, 2022.

The event was held at the Cumberland Recreational site and came after a two-year break.

The luncheon forms part of a series of on-going programmes for the elderly and will continue next week with a second luncheon on the northern side of the constituency. 

According to event co-ordinator, Lorrel Hamilton, volunteers came together from communities within North Leeward to assist with the hosting of the event.

Speaking at the event on Sunday, member of parliament for the North Leeward constituency, Hon. Carlos James, noted that the series of luncheons is an important part of showing appreciation to seniors who made their contributions as national builders.

“We started this luncheon a few years ago to show appreciation to our seniors, it has grown into something wonderful and it will now form part of a series of social programmes providing support to our seniors,” James said.

According to Minister James, following two challenging years of the covid-19 pandemic and the explosive eruption of the La Soufriere volcano, theseries of luncheons are important in bringing communities together. 

“The seniors look forward with great anticipation to these activities. It is an emotional moment for them and we acknowledge their contribution. I commend the volunteers who assisted in making this possible,” James said. 

Next week’s luncheon will take place at the Chateaubelair Methodist School commencing at 1:00 p.m.
