BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, April 25, 2018 (PLP PR Media Inc.) — Health conscious walk enthusiasts are being reminded that the latest edition of the Peoples Labour Party/Prime Minister’s Health Walk will be held this coming Saturday, April 28.
According to Ms Myrtilla Williams, Peoples Labour Party (PLP) National Secretary, the walk will be held in Constituency Number Seven. The usual route takes the walkers along the Island Main Road from the bus stop at Belle Vue through the various picturesque Constituency #7 villages of Tabernacle, Mansion, Christchurch, Bourryeau, Lodge, Lodge Project and ends at Ottley’s Hard Court.
“The walk starts at 5:00 a.m. on Saturday and as usual we are preparing to host a large turnout as has been the case in the past,” said Ms Williams. “We have been encouraged by the large number of people who turn out for the health walks to support our Prime Minister Dr the Hon Timothy Harris who is taking seriously the fight against the scourge of NCDs in a practical way.”
Prime Minister Harris, who is also CARICOM’s lead spokesperson on human resources, health and HIV matters, has been taking the matter of healthy lifestyles seriously and has shown it by the example of having started monthly health walks in his constituency over ten years ago. The event was known as the Dr Harris Constituency Number Seven Health Walk.
With more walkers turning out from outside Constituency Number Seven, the health walk was rebranded last year to give it a national outlook, and was renamed the Peoples Labour Party/Prime Minister’s Health Walk.
“Indeed for the first time last year we had the health walks held outside Constituency Number Seven,” observed Ms Williams, “The latest edition of the walk will be held in Constituency Number Seven. A healthy light breakfast will be served at the end of the walk at the Ottley’s Hard Court. Get your walking shoes ready!”
