Volunteers Spruce Up Belmont Ferry Stop

June 8, 2019 | 14 Comments

[Updated] Over 30 volunteers –  including Warwick ferry riders, neighbors, representatives from the Warwick Parish Council and Warwick North East MP Curtis Dickinson — took action to improve the Belmont Ferry stop today.

Area resident Barry Brewer explained, “Belmont Newstead provided the paint and the community did the rest. In three hours the entire structure and retaining walls were scraped, under coated and painted. Special thanks to Christine Barnard, who works for Marine and Ports, for traveling all the way from St Georges to help out on her day off and to the five kids who helped paint.

“Over the last week we asked for volunteers with a posters on the ferry and we had a tremendous turnout. Visitors taking the ferry were impressed to see the community support and the freshly painted stop. It was a great community effort.”

    Because we spend more time at a bus stop waiting for a bus I vote that we spruce up the bus stops instead.

      Good idea.
      You organize it and get the supplies and I’ll be there.
      Let us know when.

    Tremendous , well done to the volunteers. I hope it has not been looking really run down. I get the feeling that there is no maintenance by government. I don’t ride the ferry often, Again well done.

    The before and after pics show the great job done by the volunteers….Bermudaful! Remember when Bermuda visitors raved about how beautiful and clean the whole island was and took photos of everything to show their friends. The Belmont Ferry Stop will now show up people’s social media pages but a lot sites will not because they too need a spruce up.

    Where’s the fawning , patronizing praise from Straightforward ? Oh , never mind .

  12. Kathy says:

    Such an AWESOME effort on the part of everyone involved. I can’t believe the before and after photos. What a differences. Long overdue and a shame that it had to resort to volunteers to do all the work but kudos to everyone involved. Thank you!

    Well done Warwick parish volunteers, you have set the pace. Now each parish can take on a project, similar to the clean up by the volunteers at Hands of Love. The awful eyesore has remained clean since the Warwick residents got rid of tons of trash. Not only was it an eyesore it was a health hazard. So let’s look to a new project as ‘many hands make light work’. I am sure other parishes need volunteer help.
