By BBN Staff: The Ministry of Education, Youth, Sports and Culture through the National Sports Council (NSC), the Eastern Police Division (South) and the Collet Community teamed up to enhance the safety of youths in the Faber’s road extension.
A cleanup and lighting project was held.
Lighting was installed at the basketball court and football field on Faber’s Road Extension.
