Employees of RUBIS Grenada have joined forces with the community group known as the Grand Mal Development Organisation (GMDO) to give a nearby bridge a much needed facelift.
The concrete bridge which sits outside the Rubis fuel terminal at Grand Mal, St Georges, is used extensively and was long overdue for a refresh.
President of the organisation, Augustine Jones, said they were grateful for the facelift and looked forward to strengthening their continued relationship with Rubis.
“It was wonderful gestures from Rubis to not only provide the material for the project, but for the physical assistance by its team members”, he remarked.
Rubis’ Country Representative, Charles Archer said the company jumped at the opportunity to assist with sprucing up the vital route.
“The structure is a heavily used thoroughfare including pedestrians, vehicles and our own delivery trucks therefore without this bridge, traffic would be unable to flow”, he added.
According to Archer Team Rubis often undertakes similar local projects in the region “as part of our community outreach program.”
A nine member group from Rubis, led by Team Leader Keith Bruno joined six members of GMDO to do the work and to complete the project in two days.
Bruno believes the project was a worthwhile one as it allowed the employees to interact with the members of the community and develop comradery with the group members.
“Our team is anxiously looking forward to volunteering for other Rubis supported community projects around Grenada”, he said.
The process involved two days of work which included the cleaning and preparation of the bridge for painting.
All involved in the project were pleased with the overall outcome of the project with Bruno confirming the many words of support and positive comments by those using the bridge.
