The Ministry of Education, Youth, Sports and Culture through the National Sports Council (NSC), the Eastern Police Division (South) and the Collet Community teamed up to enhance the safety of youth who wish to participate in sporting and recreational activities.

Through a cleanup and lighting project, the residents of Faber’s Road Extension are now enjoying their basketball court and football field. The National Sports Council assisted in installing lights on the fields to promote healthy evening and night recreational activities. Additionally, the NSC embarked on an extensive cutting and cleanup of the football field, the basketball court and surrounding areas. The basketball court will be resurfaced over the next few weeks.

This initiative is a part of the Government’s wider vision of promoting citizen security through sports development; and as embedded within the National Sports Policy is a commitment to ensuring that young men and women have access to secure and clean sporting and recreational facilities.

The National Sports Council and the Ministry of Education, Youth, Sports and Culture thank the Collect community for their collaboration in this community-based activity. The NSC looks forward to facilitating this community’s greater engagement in sports and recreation.
