MARP donates beach table at Lime Kiln

by B. Roach

Donation from MARPAgainst this background: “… in spite of its most compelling natural attractions, this lovely beach lacks a few of the very basic amenities, which modern man with his family (and friends) require to be comfortable in a picnic setting, while we rendezvous with nature and all its therapeutic properties,” the MARP was moved to make a donation, to the island through the Montserrat Tourist Board.

The Montserrat Association of Retired Persons on their sixth consecutive Whit Monday picnicking occasion at Lime Kiln Beach, made a donation of concrete table with adjoining seats. The event took place under what the MARP President Maloney described as, “…a most picturesque canopy of Almond trees…”

Mrs. Elveta Chalmers, acting director of the Montserrat Tourist Board (MTB) accepted the table and benches with a ‘shake hand greeting’. She thanked the organisation and looked forward to their use: “… of Montserratians, residents and also for our visitors,” adding a suggestion, ”that we enjoy them, we take good care of them, and we do not destroy them.”

She looked forward to, “next year when we come back for our picnic, we want to come an meet them intact like how we have them this afternoon.”

Anthony Maloney, president of the association explained the decision to make the donation, on what was the sixth consecutive occasion of their picnicking at the beachfront. That he said is, “protected from the piercing rays of the noonday sun by a most picturesque canopy of Almond trees, which opens to a delightful, not very expansive beach, in close proximity to the soothing and tranquil waters of the Caribbean sea.”

The MARP invited the press to note the occasion as he further explained that the organisation, “decided to divert some of its very slender resources to sponsor this concrete table with adjoining seats, made and installed by Mr. Alton Lindsey, for the enjoyment of all those Montserratians, visitors and tourists.”

He also spoke about reviving the picnicking tradition: “We are also here every year because as a Montserrat tradition, we’d like to revive the spirit of people recognizing that a Rendezvous with nature is very important from time to time for rest and relaxation, here is an ideal spot

While thanking all present, Maloney acknowledged the presence of Rupert ‘Selsi’ Isles who he described as a benefactor who has been with and helped the association from its inception. He revealed their intention construct toilet facilities, when able, as their next venture at the beach location.

He invited everyone present to remain and enjoy the variety of drinks, music, goatwater, barbecued and grilled chicken, fish and ochros, and other variety of foods.
