CARIFESTA X materials

for distribution to citizens

THE build-up for Carifesta
X continued yesterday with
the enlistment by the Secre-
tariat of two groups in the city
for the distribution of flags,
postcards, banners and other
promotional materials for the
Minister of Sports and Cul-
ture Dr. Frank Anthony handed
over flags, posters, banners and
T Shirts to representatives of the
Mayor and City Council
(M&CC) and the Carifesta Plan-
ning Committee of Festival City,
The items are to be distrib-
uted by the two groups to resi-
dents and members of the public
for use in creating the colour and
atmosphere which would pro-
mote public awareness of the up-
coming mega event, Minister An-
thony said.
The postcards to be distrib-
uted bear pictures of historic
buildings as well as many of the
venues of the event, and are

aimed at educating visitors on
the cultural heritage of the
country, Dr Anthony said.
The materials were handed
over at the Carifesta Secretariat
on Middle Street in the city.
Present at the handing over
were Chief Executive Officer of
the Carifesta Secretariat Nigel
Dharamlall, Director of Logis-
tics Colonel Lindon Ross, Me-
dia Co-ordinator Ms Carolyn
Walcott and other members of
the Festival City Planning
Deputy Mayor Mr.
Robert Williams received
the materials on behalf of
the M&CC and Mrs. Bar-
bara Gainer received hers
on behalf of the Festival
City Planning Committee.
Deputy Mayor Williams
stressed that in the buildup to
the start of the event, all the
homes in Festival City built in
1972 to accommodate artistes
for the first ever Carifesta will

be specially decorated to recre-
ate the atmosphere which ex-
isted at that time.
The Deputy Mayor, who is
also a part of the Festival City
Planning Committee, took the
opportunity to appeal to city
residents to help keep the city
free of litter as the festival ap-
proaches, and to continue this
during the event and even after.
"We want a special effort
by all to keep the city clean; to
keep the drains clean to help
prevent flooding in the event of
rain he stressed.
He also disclosed that
the M&CC was working
closely with the Carifesta
Secretariat and the rel-
evant Government Minis-
tries to ensure that all the
venues for the event and
their environs are spruced
up to reflect the highest
standards of environmen-
tal cleanliness and aes-

Dr. Anthony hands over the Carifesta X promotional materials to Deputy Mayor Robert
Williams at the Secretariat yesterday.
