Charlestown—Nevis—Charlestown was buzz of activity during the course of the week, the Nevis Division of the St.Kitts-Nevis Fire and Rescue Services celebrated their 15th anniversary of existence, since they parted company with the Royall St.Christopher and Nevis Police force.
Coordinator of the local activities on Nevis, Mrs. Mavis White-Archibald stated that except for a few minor hiccups, the activities had gone as planned and the officers are looking forward to the events that will climax the week, this coming weekend.
The schedule of activities involved the following:

Tuesday 6th January—Open day and members of the public were allowed to visit the main Fire Hall in Charlestown.
Wednesday 7th January—Community service day. The Fire Officers spent much of the day using their fire hoses to clear clogged drains in Charlestown and also beautifying the two main public squares in town.
