Lochandprashad said Garraway was successful in clearing and cleaning the area and develop it to a place of pristine beauty via donations from private sector and NGOS. Benches and bins were installed, trees pruned and painted and a filling of sand was added.

Meanwhile, Lochandprashad thanked several of the constituents within the town council for their delivery on projects. She explained that through observation, most of the projects undertaken by the constituencies were not assigned but done on the constituent’s initiative, similarly to Councillor Garraway.

When complete the project will see five mini marts, a beautiful walkway that will be powered by PV (Photovoltaic) panels.
