Residents of Simeon Road, PetitValley through the initiative of some of it’s young people are currently on the streets with activity geared at re – grouping our community.The youths chose as their action a clean – up of the environment of the Youth Center which is still under reconstruction.
Villagers from different political persuasions P.N.M , N.N.V. Peoples Platform are all out their in an attempt to resuscitate the Village Council.
Past Village Councils attempted to fulfill the role expected of it but apathy stepped in and the Village Council went into dormancy.
An attempt is now being made to resuscitate it and EGBE ONISIN ELEDUMARE, an African Spiritual organization in the community suppotrs this effort to return a sense of community responsibility to our community.
Thanks is due to Elders like Selwyn “Eager ” Myers, Reynold ” Sangolari ” Diamond, ” Itchie ” , ” Brownie ” for maintaing life in and around the Center and standing when others became disillusioned.
