Gladys Potter, caretaker for the UPP’s St John’s Rural South constituency, urges MP Daryll Matthew to ensure Golden Grove residents have a community center.

The incomplete structure, planned since 2009, was demolished by the Development Control Agency due to foundational issues. Despite a structural engineer’s report affirming its solidity, the building was demolished, leaving the foundation intact.

Potter advocates for fulfilling the promise of a community center, citing its positive impact on the area and youth.

MP Matthew mentions plans for an outdoor gym and police outpost instead, citing the building’s structural concerns and proposing a retrofitted container for police operations.

Potter supports the container idea but emphasizes the need for a community center.

Matthew notes the cost of building and maintaining one, suggesting a multipurpose space for meetings and classes, similar to the new wing at Golden Grove Primary School.
