Bloomfield residents met with the Minister of Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs, Hon. Sydney Allicock who made his first visit to the community during a community engagement on Friday afternoon.

Minister Allicock noted the various developments in the community under this administration, pointing to the improvements in the regional public health system which has seen the delivery of health care “second to none”. He also highlighted the gains in the education sector.

On the recent misguided attempts by certain sections of the society to cause distrust among the citizens, Minister Allicock emphasised that the Coalition Government lives up to the country’s motto ‘One People, One Nation, One Destiny’. Further, he encouraged the residents to collaborate to develop their area.

“Work together to achieve a common goal, teach our children to be kind and loving to others. Respect each other’s diversity,” the minister remarked.

Minister Allicock also met with scores of residents who raised their concerns and pledged to have them addressed promptly. One matter he resolved immediately was a request for sport supplies for youth in the community. Minister Allicock made a presentation of several footballs.

The residents acknowledged the minister for his visit as they pledged to work together to further develop their community.
