MP Pringle to celebrate handover of Morris Bay rest stop to community group on Sunday

Three years after work commenced on the public restroom facility
at Morris Bay, MP Jamale Pringle will formally hand it over to the
community during a grand dedication ceremony on Sunday, March 31.

He is inviting the residents of All Saints East and St. Luke, and
neighbouring communities, to come out and be a part of the celebration,
which kicks off at 5 p.m.

In December 2022, Pringle had announced that tile work was being
finished, and that the facility would be beneficial to locals and visitors alike
when completed.

However, he encountered a number of setbacks, since, after the initial
resistance of the Development Control Authority (DCA) and challenges left
from the COVID-19 pandemic.

But, he says, its completion shows the resilience of the Opposition United
Progressive Party and that certain things can be accomplished although
out of government.

The All Saints East and St. Luke MP points out that the facility is more than
a bathroom. Rather, it is a rest stop that will provide some economic activity
for the small businesses plying their trade on the beach and in close

The facility comprises bathroom stalls for males and females, including one
for the disabled, which will be outfitted with urinals and sinks, Pringle says. 

After the facility is handed over, Pringle says the Old Road Community
Group will be responsible for its upkeep and maintenance.
However, as the parliamentary representative, he says he will have some
oversight, ensuring that the facility is kept in pristine condition.

Since the construction of the restroom, the nearby beach has been
transformed into one of the cleanest and most beautiful locations on the
island, and there is a lot more interest in the area, the MP notes.

Pringle, who will be camping at Morris Bay for the Easter weekend, says
the construction of the rest stop will enhance the tourism product. He
explains that the country will reap greater benefits through the revenues
earned in the area from tourists using the facility.
