Bense Town Hall Meeting
Residents of Bense and Hampstead mind can now be at ease as a Ground breaking ceremony for their new water supply project was held on Monday July 9th at the Bense Government School.
Mr. Williams says although the contract has been signed, residents need to be aware that they will not receive water right away.
He believes “patience is a virtue” and these projects may take time.
Minister of Land, Housing, Settlement and Water Resource Management Honorable Reginald Austrie hopes to receive water from the Hampstead River with this new system to reduce costs.
Prime Minister Honorable Roosevelt Skerrit says that this village is very sentimental to him and in fact, his family gave land away such as where the Government school is built presently.
