Villagers of the Brunswick community, together with the Ministry of Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs and NaDMA, joined together collectively in an effort to clean the pond in the area.
The pond which was filled with water lilies and other unwanted materials has developed some disinterest for village farmers and other users of the pond from the Brunswick community over the years.
A well-known Brunswick man, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Legal Affairs, Labor, Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs and Local Government, Hon. Elvin Nimrod, was spotted playing an agile role in his community cleanup event.
Minister Nimrod described love as the key to a better world which must begin at home and the community. It provides the greatest power for transformation and wherever there is love, there is progress. Minister Nimrod said that he had known the pond to be very active all his life in the community. However, he was not pleased with its recent condition.
Deputy Nimrod added that the cleaning of the pond will indeed add back value to farming activities, supplying both domestic and livestock water supplies especially during the dry season as well as the irrigation of crops. Additionally, he stated that the repairing of the pond will also support the long term livelihood of the community. Nimrod is appealing to the frequent users of the Brunswick pond to maintain its cleanliness at all times.
