The eight cricket teams of Guyana‘s leading youth and sports organisation, the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club from December 20-24, 2015 successfully hosted Berbice’s first ever Christmas Village in the
compound of the Rose Hall Town Primary School.
The historic event was a joint effort between the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club, its cricket teams – Rose Hall Town Farfan & Mendes Under-15, Bakewell Under-17 and Second Division, Pepsi Under-19 and Intermediate, Metro Female and Gizmos & Gadgets Under-21 and First Division and the Ministry of Tourism.
Thousands of Berbicians visited the Village and for many children it was a first time experience.
The club’s Secretary/CEO, Hilbert Foster described the Christmas Village as challenging but said it was a huge success as they achieved all of objectives. The Village, Foster stated allowed many to experience the old tradition of celebrating Christmas in a peaceful and respectful manner with the birth of Jesus being the main theme.
The entire compound of the Rose Hall Town Primary School was transformed into a dreamland with Christmas characters, fairy lights and children characters. The Village also included the Nativity Scene, Santa, his sleigh and reindeers, a 20 feet locally made Christmas Tree with plastic bottles, Christmas games and fun park, a very popular Horror House, Computer games section, a photo studio and food booths.
First Lady Mrs. Sandra Granger and Minister of Tourism Ms Cathy Hughes were present at the opening of the Village and both hailed the Club for its vision of hosting. Foster expressed gratitude to the Ministry of Tourism, Ministry of Culture, the Central Corentyne Chamber of Commerce, Nand Persaud Co. Ltd, Gizmos & Gadgets, Bakewell, Scotia Bank, Edward B. Beharry, the Ministry of Education, Region 6 Regional Democratic Council, Rainbow Signs, Rose Hall Town Primary School, “B” Division of the Guyana Police Force, Guyana Fire Service, Berbice Division of the Guyana Prison Service, Poonai Drugs Store, Balram Shane Store, Décor Gift Gallery, China Trading, Guyana Beverage Company, National Communication Network and Berbice Regional Health Authority for their support of the Christmas Village and announced that the event would be an annual one by the Club.
This would be undertaken by the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club, based on the response from the general public who all expressed pleasure that families were able to enjoy Christmas in a special way.
Meanwhile, the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club was also able to successfully complete its annual multi-million dollar Charity Programmes despite having to host the Christmas Village. This year’s programmes included sharing toys to 1500 less fortunate Children, 300 food hampers to less fortunate families, clothing to children, general feeding of the poor programmes, visits to Children and Senior Citizens homes in Berbice among others.
The main objectives of the programmes were to make positive difference in the lives of others during the festive season. Foster praised his fellow executives, members of the cricket teams and the Club’s Over-35 Section for their hard work and dedication towards making all the plans for the season a reality.
