EPIC upgrade for Learie Constantine Grounds

The residents of the Tunapuna/Piarco constituency can look forward to upgraded bathroom facilities at the Learie Constantine Grounds. 

The initiative is being spearheaded by the Tunapuna/Piarco Regional Corporation with the assistance of Digicel Foundation. 

Thanks to Councillor for Trincity/Macoya, Josiah Austin, who applied to the Digicel Foundation for the EPIC grant last year, the Foundation invested TT$33,750 towards the upgrade.

The Tunapuna/Piarco Regional Corporation also invested TT$10,000 and provided the labour for the project.  

The grounds, named after Learie Constantine who was one of the greatest all-rounders in cricket,  a lawyer and politician who also served as Trinidad and Tobago's High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, continues to be the venue of choice for varying sporting tournaments and family events since the 1960’s. 

Visiting the site to have a look at the progress made were Diana Mathura-Hobson, Project Co-ordinator of the Digicel Foundation, Councillor for Trinicity/Macoya, Josiah Austin as well as Quincy Legerton Project Coordinator and Bevon Belgrave, Project Foreman from the Tunapuna/Piarco Regional Corporation.

The team expects that the refurbished facility will be completed by the end of April.
