Water relief for St Peter districts


Share post:

WHILE MOST PEOPLE spent their Sundays going to church, cooking, washing and relaxing, it was a different order for the residents of a number of St Peter districts yesterday.

The people living at Mount Brevitor (and its developments), Benn Hill, French Village and Rose Hill were hustling to collect water from neighbouring districts or ferrying off to family and friends to get a helping hand.

Their suffering actually started last Wednesday when the taps suddenly went dry. Some had to put off certain chores they would normally have done daily.

It was their turn to experience what many in other districts in the north of the island had been encountering over many weeks.
