THREE grounds in Region Two will benefit from a $30M injection from the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport, as part of their country-wide ground enhancement initiative.

Minister Charles Ramson Jr and his team made a visit to the Pomeroon-Supenaam region where he announced that the grounds at Affiance, Reliance and Queenstown will be the beneficiaries of the project.

Cricket is the most-played sport in Region Two, and as such, at most of his stops, the request for assistance ranged from the provision of cricket gear, to modifying the facilities.

Projects that were funded under the last budget were also inspected by Minister Ramson and team. In an earlier interview with Chronicle Sport, Minister Ramson noted that it will become a ‘staple’ for him to make periodic checks on projects being funded by the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport, to ensure that tax-payers dollars are being spent on what it was requested for.

Visits were also made at Devonshire Castle.

Since taking office last August, Minister Ramson has gone on a country-wide campaign to ascertain the needs and wants of athletes and administrators, and would’ve made significant contributions to upgrade those facilities.

At the time of this report, the Ministry did not say where Minister Ramson will be making his next visit, however, those announcements are usually made via the Ministry’s facebook page.
