Labour Day projects announced
Safeguarding local and national monuments will be the focus of activities for Labour Day 2017, which will be observed under the theme 'Restore, Preserve, Beautify'.
Labour Day will be observed on Tuesday, May 23, with emphasis on two national projects: the Ward Theatre and the Central Police Station in Kingston.
On May 23, work will begin on the front of the structure. Over time, the work will include renovation of changing rooms, retrofitting of the seating within the theatre, electrical and plumbing work, and installation of air conditioning units.
Apart from Central, 18 other police stations across the island will benefit from restoration work.
Also, as part of this year's celebrations, the ministry has partnered with the National Environment and Planning Agency to plant 155,000 trees.
