Residents of Blueberry Hill received three street lamps from Minister of State, Joseph Harmon during a walkabout in Linden, Wismar, Upper Demerara-Berbice, Region 10 today, where he met and interacted with residents at their homes.

The lamps are to be placed at strategic points on the main road at Blueberry Hill which did not have lights.

Elders and leaders of the village, Daphne Sandy, Ruth Davis and Collette Duncan who received the lamps on behalf of the community expressed gratitude to the government for the much-needed lights.

Duncan said that street lights will effectively improve security in the community. “Lighting is one of the security aspects of any community and so I’m grateful to be receiving these lights. It will be placed on the public road where the residents will benefit,” Duncan told the Department of Public Information (DPI).

Minister Harmon said that this is a fulfilment of a promise made to the residents of the community, noting that “we have delivered as we always do.” He told the residents that the APNU+AFC coalition is the “Government of the day” and will continue to deliver services to the Guyanese people.
