Ann’s Grove residents call for needed drainage works

Workers cleaning the trench in the Ann’s Grove village last Thursday

Residents and farmers at Ann’s Grove village, on the East Coast of Demerara, are calling for better drainage, which they say is currently being neglected by their neighbourhood council.

The Ann’s Grove/Two Friends Farmers Group recently wrote a letter to this newspaper voicing their concerns about the way the cleaning is carried out in the community. The letter stated that between May and December, 2018, the drains and trenches were not cleaned even though payments were made to a contractor.

Stabroek News subsequently visited Ann’s Grove and spoke with villagers about the issues brought up in the letter…..
