Sports Department Concerned Over Use Of ET Willet Park

Charlestown, Nevis (Curtis Morton): Director of Sports, Trevor Chapman, on Tuesday 27th November, expressed concerns over the publicized use of the ET Willet Park when permission for certain events was not officially granted. He noted that there have been cases even in the recent past when events have been advertised to take place at the ET Willet Park, and no official permission has been granted for such events to take place.  In some instances, permission was not even sought.

The Director would like to remind the members of sporting organizations and other bodies, and indeed the general public that once the use of the ET Willet Park is required to host a particular event, a letter requesting permission for the use of the Park must be written to the Department of Sports requesting permission for the use of the facility.

The letter must clearly state the proposed event; the date of the event and the approximate period for which the event will last. The organizers of the given event will receive a timely reply stating whether or not permission has been granted and the required stipulations for clean up etc. Groups must not proceed to advertise any event until permission has been granted

The Director noted that once this is done, it will serve to alleviate conflicts in terms of various groups which may require the use of the facility. He further noted that there may be extreme cases when permission may be previously granted and may have to be put on hold to accommodate another event.  In such cases, the organizers of the event will be duly informed and alternate dates can be arranged for the proposed event. The Director is appealing for the cooperation and understanding of the general public towards the common cause of community development.
