Works at cemetery are underway
Minor enhancement works in the Le Repentir cemetery have started and are moving apace.
Works have begun at the Southern section of the cemetery, close to Sussex Street and include the clearing and cutting of weeds and grass from around the tombs.
These works are being undertaken by members of the Georgetown Prisons.
The initiative to improve the conditions in the cemetery was put forward by members of an advisory committee which was established to help City Council to restore the burial space to its former state.
Speaking with Capitol News, Councilor Patricia Chase-Green a member of the advisory committee said she has suggested that the enhancement works further include the white washing of trees and tombs.
Green said while the situation at the cemetery maybe somewhat improved, the question now is whether or not it will be maintained. She added that the council may be looking to establish a management team to work in collaboration with the advisory committee.
