Cabinet wants Wallings Nature Reserve Signs returned

14

CABINET NOTES:

The Cabinet received a report from the Minister of Agriculture regarding the Wallings Reservoir Park and the decision by its caretaker to surrender control of the National Parks site.

The Minister reported that the signs that were contributed by corporate sponsors were taken and ought to be returned. The site was never leased, nor was ownership passed to anyone; it was a voluntary arrangement which has now come to an end.

    A…will the Government manage the Park like the present caretakers or former caretakers?
    B…is this a case of volunteers doing what the government should be doing, and how that the Nature Reserve has become a well maintained Park/Reserve and is growing,
    that those PPP – piss poor planners, of the Government are trying to be relevant?

    On another note…RE:Potworks Dam to Collins Dam to Betty’s Hope.

    A…now that Potworks Dam is bone dry…
    (i)…while it was observed, that the dam
    would become dry, as it is now,
    were contingency plans developed,
    so that, now that it’s dry to clean,
    seal and upgrade it?

    The RAINS will eventually return!

    The Area mentioned, POTWORKS to COLLINS to BETTY’S HOPE can be developed into a Nature Park, Camp Grounds, Hiking, Horseback Riding etc.

    Where is the Agriculture Department, Parks & Rec, Tourism Department at on this one?

    • @Naturelover…
      😎ABLP will claim The Wallings Nature Reserve, as a Manifesto Accomplishment. They’ll then put their Lackies, Cronies, Ghost Workers in place to collect #free money!

      The present caretakers did a marvellous job with the area. If, I’m not mistaken even Sandals came on board and was supporting their efforts.

  2. Because the signs were donated does not mean the Government owns them. To whom were they donated? Who approached the corporate sponsors and requested the donation? The government or the NGO?

  3. What a sad state of affairs! The government getting involved now that WNR was doing so well spells the end of this reserve.

  4. Dear government. ,

    Ummmm. Since u all have Soo much time to go ask WNR for signs

    When will you all be discussing the giant African snails. That are having sex in the nations water sources. ?

    That not important ? Let’s talk about the bacteria they carry to our water supply ? That not important ?

    Ok.

    • Dear White Rabbit…

      OK then…

      Kum een Salt n Pepper…let’s talk about sex, let’s talk about all of our possibilities!

      I couldn’t resist, dropping the Salt n Pepper! Not on the cooked snails though, or will the New Antigua Airways be serving Snail Meals to and from Nigeria! They love this delicacy!

  5. Politicians don’t work for free and neither should this young lady. Will she be compensated for her time? Corporate sponsors donated the money and she donated her time. WTH did the government do to help this project? Rumor has it that they already have plans to turn it over to some investor.
    Crooks!

  6. This ALP government screws up good local projects that are run by good hearted volunteer people. Who cares if they are not the landowners or tenants? They are doing a good job voluntarily. Can the government not see something good being done by Antiguans and not interfere or destroy it?

  7. I had really like this young lady until this happened. I listened to her on the radio and she sounded like someone that lost her way and headed for corruption. She did some great work but all alone had motives that were not pure. Little more she would have owned Wallings.

  8. ABLP IS SEEKING TO USE THE IDEA AND CREATE A SELF-ENRICHMENT SCHEME FOR THEIR MINISTER(S), MARK MY WORD – WE WILL SOON HEAR THAT AN ENRICHMENT SCHEME WAS CONCOCTED WITH MINISTERS BEHIND THE SCENE, JUST LIKE THE EGG PRODUCTION MACHINE!

  9. Has this been taken away because another entity – maybe already operating in the area or just entering the market – to profit off of. I would dare not think the Government would do this to the youth it promises to empower… let’s watch this play out.
