Ronald Celestine has been installed as the new chairman at the Pigeon Point Heritage Park and Store Bay Beach Facility for the next year.
Celestine and his board were appointed by Secretary of Tourism, Culture and Transportation Nadine Stewart-Phillips last week at the Tourism Division’s head office in Scarborough.
In addition to the overall administrative control of the two facilities, the board will be responsible for the development and protection of the two beaches, promotion of the facilities’ services and stakeholder relations and staff management.
The other board members are Ricardo Alfred (deputy chairman), Kevern Phillips (director), Kieron McDougall (director), Trudy Daly-Caraballo (director), Delmond Edwards (director) and Esther Tobias-Clarke (director). Natisha Charles-Pantin will serve as secretary to the board.
Phillips thanked the members for accepting the call to serve.
“Pigeon Point Heritage Park has been generating its own revenue over the years, and that achievement must be commended,” Stewart-Phillips said.
“Nevertheless, greater efforts must be made to ensure the continued financial viability of its operations. Greater efforts must also be placed on marketing the facility locally, regionally and internationally with the view to increasing traffic to the destination, and more visitors to the facility.”
