Police personnel at the Spaldings Police Station in Clarendon, as well as senior citizen Lloyd Powell of Fearon District at Sanguinetti in that parish were given something to smile about on Labour Day.

This following a painting project at the police station, and a refurbishing work to the one bedroom of the disabled elderly resident.

From as early as 6:30 a.m. scores of residents, headed by Spaldings businessman Michael Patmore and his many employees, turned up at the Spaldings Police Station to give a well-needed facelift.

Armed with gallons of paint and the necessary tools, residents and the Patmore contingent gave the building a new look .

Patmore, managing director of Patmore's Hardware, said he received assistance from the Kiwanis Club of Spaldings, the Police Youth Club, the proprietors of Quest Star Juice, as well as officers from the station.

"The contingent included over 40 persons ... . The day was very good and I am pleased that we could have gotten together as patriotic residents to give a hand on Labour Day, by putting in some good work," said Patmore.

Meanwhile, councillor for the Spaldings Division, Trevor Gordon, was also a pleased citizen when he turned up at Powell's home. It was a good turnout of workmen who worked tirelessly to see to the repair of the disabled resident's one-bedroom dwelling house.

Powell, in expressing thanks to those who helped, said no more will he have to encounter a leaking roof or fear the doors are going to fall off.
