Gdf builds bridge for buxton youth centre

The Toucan II Multi-Purpose Club and Youth Centre, of Buxton, now has a new bridge at the entrance of its premises as part of ‘Operation Restore Order’.
The club had requested the assistance of the army to have the bridge constructed, and the army responded in an effort to improve the relationship between the Guyana Defence Force and the Buxton community.
Construction of the bridge came quickly on the heels of the successful conclusion of a jointly-hosted August holiday camp for the children in the area.
Members of the club were high in praise for the four Engineer Battalion soldiers who worked quickly to have the bridge erected.
Ms. Herod, leader of the club, said that she is satisfied with the sturdiness of the bridge, and indicated that it attested to the professionalism and skill of the soldiers.
“With construction of the club’s main facility underway, the bridge was sorely needed, and now we can progress with more speed,” she said.
“While all the preparatory and closing works occurred over a period of one week, the bridge itself was completed in just over two days,” she added.
Eric Phillips, who is integrally involved with the club, has expressed sincere gratitude to the GDF for the bridge.
