After years of trying, the Dr Eric Williams Memo-
rial Committee has finally succeeded in getting a
site to put up a bust in honour of this country s
first prime minister.
On Friday chairman of the committee Reginald
Vidale, together with San Fernando Mayor Dr Navi
Muradali, turned the sod for the construction of a
plinth and bust in honour of Williams on Harris
Promenade, San Fernando.
Vidale, speaking with reporters after the brief cer-
emony, said the sod-turning was "symbolic" for the
committee. Williams died 32 years ago.
"Today is an historic day for me. When Dr Williams
had laid his bucket down in Woodford Square, I have
come here to lay it down in Harris Promenade, where
the first corporation has seen it necessary and relevant
to recognise the legacy and the memory of the dis-
tinguished father of the nation," Vidale said.
He said the committee had been pleading for a
number of years to construct a memorial in Williams
He said within two months, a space for the bust
had been assigned by the mayor.
The bust, which will be sculpted by San Fernan-
do artist Willi Chen, will be installed near the Gandhi
and Simon Bolivar busts.
Muradali told reporters he was pleased to grant
the space to install the bust, which would be a fitting
tribute to Williams.
Muradali explained that the city council made the
decision a few months ago to install the bust and on
Thursday he honoured the commitment.
He stressed that more needs to be done to recognise
Williams contribution and his contribution should
be made part of the school curriculum.
"There are many children out there who are still
to fully appreciate the work that Dr Williams has
done. More needs to be done on that part and we
will continue to do more in the city of San Fernando.
This is just a small gesture," Muradali said.
All four political parties running in the
Tunapuna/Piarco region have been invited
to participate in a public forum to outline
their position on the development of the
Orange Grove Savannah.
The forum is being hosted by the Tuna-
puna-based Lloyd Best Institute of the West
Indies and comes amid an escalating com-
munity debate over the Government s devel-
opment plans for the Savannah, which
includes the Eddie Hart Grounds.
The forum, titled The People s Turn, takes
place on October 16, from 6-9 pm at Charis
Works Christian Academy, Orange Grove
Road, Tacarigua, opposite the Orange Grove
Journalist Dale Enoch will moderate the
In a letter inviting the participation of
the COP, ILP, MSJ and PNM, director of
the institute Sunity Maharaj said the aim
of the forum is to facilitate a conversation
between the people of the Tunapuna/Piarco
Region and political parties vying to rep-
resent them through the October 21 local
"The future of the savannah has emerged
as an issue of great importance to the com-
munity represented by the Tunapuna/Piarco
Regional Corporation," she said.
"As in any public issue, there are many
shades of opinion and much room for infor-
mation and clarification.
"In hosting this forum, the Lloyd Best
Institute embraces its responsibility, as a
long-standing independent institution of
the Tunapuna community, to promote public
engagement and community harmony based
on rational discussion."
The institute explained in a release that
each forum participant will have 20 minutes
to outline their position on the Orange Grove
Savannah and to present any plan their
party may have for its development. Their
presentation may extend to include other
