Four years after being promised a national award, Dr Ian Hypolite finally received his honour yesterday.
The residents of the Tunapuna/Piarco constituency can look forward to upgraded bathroom facilities at the Learie Constantine Grounds. The initiative is being spearheaded by the Tunapuna/Piarco Regional Corporation with the assistance of Digicel Foundation.
Thanks to Councillor for Trinicty/Macoya, Josiah Austin, who applied to the Digicel Foundation for the EPIC grant last year, the Foundation invested $33,750 towards the upgrade. The Tunapuna/Piarco Regional Corporation also invested $10,000 and provided the labour for the project.
The Grounds; named after Learie Constantine who was one of the greatest all-rounders in cricket, as well as a lawyer and politician who also served as T&T’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, continues to be the venue of choice for varying sporting tournaments and family events since the 1960’s.
Visiting the site to have a look at the progress made were Diana Mathura-Hobson, Project Coordinator of the Digicel Foundation; Councillor for Trinicity/Macoya Josiah Austin, as well as Quincy Legerton, Project Coordinator and Bevon Belgrave, Project Foreman, from the Tunapuna/Piarco Regional Corporation.
The team expects that the refurbished facility will be completed by the end of April.
