THE Pointe-a-Pierre Wild Fowl Trust Boardwalk has reopened with wheelchair access for people with physical disabilities. Patron of the trust President Paula-Mae Weekes lauded the efforts to make the space more inclusive for all citizens.

“I am pleased to formally commission the newly-restored boardwalk for the differently-abled which will ensure that an underserved section of our society can share the rich and valuable experience afforded by this bucolic setting,” she said at the reopening on December 8.

Dr Sterling Frost, deputy CEO of First Citizens, said, “As I see it, First Citizens and TTMF have not simply invested in the construction of a pathway, but rather, we have rebuilt a symbolic bridge to connect people with our environment.”
