A 4-hundred thousand dollar (EC$400,000) sporting facility was opened in Central Leeward on Sunday, September 11. The Layou playing field now has a new Pavilion with changing rooms, bathrooms, locker rooms and two seating areas.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Area Representative Hon. Orando Brewster urged the residents of Layou to take care of the facility. The Minister added that the playing field will be enclosed and further work will be done on the old pavilion to house a gym and a conference room.

The project, which started in 2020, was supported by the National Lotteries Authority, at an initial cost of $389,000 but due to vandalism and theft, additional work had to be done and more funds allocated.

Further upgrades of sporting facilities are scheduled for Central Leeward in Barrouallie and Buccament Bay. The Layou playing field will be managed by the Layou Sports and Culture Association.

The Minister added that a 2.3 million dollar upgrade of the Arnos Vale Sporting Complex is already underway, which would modernise and transform the complex.
