(SNO) — A mural is being created in Saltibus to honour the memories of residents who have contributed to the community.
This was revealed by Bradley Felix, parliamentary representative for Choiseul/Saltibus, in a recent social media post.
Felix wrote: “By remembering the people who have contributed to the community of Saltibus. Those we love don’t go away, They walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near, Still loved, still missed and forever dear.”
He congratulated “Shala and Marsha” for “this initiative to remember some of Saltibus personalities”.
Persons who responded to the post have congratulated Shala and Marsha, as well as Felix, who is also the minister for commerce, industry, investment, enterprise development and consumer affairs.
Paula Marquis said: “I Love it. It’s beautiful. Only yesterday I was thinking if this wall wasn’t gonna be painted for independence. Thanks Marsha and Miss monroque.”
Shermz Hippolyte also said: “Wow lovely marsha great gesture hope someone else can think another do somewhere.but whose this lady.”
Some persons have suggested replicating the idea in other communities across Saint Lucia.
“All communities in Saint Lucia should have one of those,” wrote Magdelene Daniel .
