As we say goodbye to the carnival festivities and usher in the new school term, CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank staff, and the Royal Grenada Police Force (RGPF), combined their resources to renew some important road markings that had worn away in the capital, St George’s.
Staff, family and friends of CIBC FirstCaribbean along with several officers of the RGPF, turned out to repaint pedestrian crossings, as well as directional and other road signs located along historic Melville Street. Melville Street is one of the main streets in St George’s and lies on the doorstep of many businesses including the Esplanade Mall, which houses many commercial organisations as well as the cruise port terminal.
Nigel Ollivierre, Country Manager of CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank, thanked the RGPF for the active role they played in successfully completing the project. He stated: “Our town of St George’s is internationally renowned for its beauty and attracts many persons for various reasons daily. We are delighted that our investment in this much-needed activity will be appreciated and benefit the many students, businessmen and women, locals and tourists who regularly use this street. Whether driving or walking the street, the newly painted road markings will provide clear direction as they navigate through the city.”
CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank continues to proactively uphold its commitment to putting the community first through its many enriching programmes such as ‘Walk for the Cure’ and the adoption of various community initiatives throughout the tri-island state.
