Reinstating unity within the community is the objective behind a number of events and activities organized in District 1 as part of their Christmas Village event set for Saturday, December 17, 2022, at the Capoon’s Bay ground where activities will run from noon to 10:00 pm.

Ms Natalie O. Hodge, a member of the District 1 community group during a December 8, 2022, interview with JTV’s The Big Story said for the Christmas season 2022, they are bringing the community together in a big way and the entire territory is invited.

Ms Natalie O. Hodge, a member of the District 1 community group during a December 8, 2022, interview with JTV’s The Big Story said for the Christmas season 2022, they are bringing the community together in a big way and the entire territory is invited.

Kiddies Zone will be available - Ms Hodge 

“There is going to be storytelling movies for children because of course it’s a family fun-filled event,” she added while detailing that available at the event will be a kiddies’ zone with a bouncy house.

Ms Hodge however noted that only members of the district will be permitted to vend at the event on the day in question, “District one vendors will have local traditional foods on sale. So that is open to just District One vendors. And then we are also going to have demonstrations, how to make dumb bread and sugar cake,” she added.

The event will also feature a sing-out competition, as well as a tart competition “So what we are going to do for this village is to judge the tarts based on their category, so all coconut tarts are going to be in one category, all guava tarts, pineapple, guava berry… so the person who bakes the best in each category,” she said will win that category.


Food & Drink Competitions 

There are plans also for a local drink competition on that day and Ms Hodge said that there will be fabulous prizes for all the competitions.

Going forward into the new year for District 1, Ms Hodge said there are a number of committees that have been established such as a career fair committee and they will be hosting workshops as part of local workforce development initiatives where they will identify areas in trade that can bring jobs to the district.

“We have the beautification committee, they have already hit the ground running since the hurricanes they went around to different areas... planting palms and shrubs to back that beauty in the District,” Ms Hodge shared.
