Chief secretary of the Tobago House of Assembly
(THA) Orville London and his family have returned
to the newly rebuilt official residence in Lowlands.
The official Lowlands residence, which was built
in the early 1950s, had significant structural damage
over the years, as well as inadequate space as an
official residence. It was originally built as a single-
In a statement, secretary of the Division of Infra-
structure and Public Utilities Gary Melville said, "The
project at first was supposed to be a renovation that
would have addressed a number of deficiencies on
the property, but when the demolition process started,
it was recognised that there were some other structural
issues." This he said, expanded the scope of work.
Melville said the initial estimated cost of $1.2 million
was increased due to the additional structural work
that also included rewiring, plumbing and sewage
work and the expansion of living space such as the
master bedroom and kitchen. The completed ren-
ovations cost $5 million.
"There was a bit of a delay. We d anticipated for
that project to be finished in April, but there were
some significant changes to the scope," Melville said
during the weekly Post Executive Council media
briefing last Wednesday.
Repair work on the residence started last November.
London, who moved into the residence last week,
said: "It s a vast improvement on what existed before.
It is now adequate for any chief secretary who is
likely to occupy it in future."

Bishop Dave Alleyne says party politics continue
to perpetuate grand parties at the expense of the
state where citizens are not invited and left out. He
said only a few gain great benefits from the natural
resources that belong to every citizen, while others
He said this during Emancipation Day celebrations
hosted by the ministry at Praise City International,
Caroni Savannah Road, Chaguanas, last week.
In his address to the audience he called on citizens
to struggle constructively and peacefully until no
one is left behind and to become a great society in
which there is parallel development of all.
Quoting the words of Nelson Mandela, he encour-
aged the audience to reflect on the journey not from
Africa, but from August 1, 1834, the date Emancipation
Acts were passed and came into effect. He said though
slavery was abolished 180 years ago, there have always
been different incarnations to perpetuate the non-
attainment of real freedom.
"They must be willing to contribute greater to the
building of society and to foster the laws of humanity,
human rights, civility, respect, honour, morality,
loyalty, peace and unity. The time has come for Afro-
Trinidadian to focus on becoming honest entrepre-
neurs," Alleyne said.
The programme, titled Black is Beautiful, was
organised by Pastor Elisabeth Stewart.
