Council Greets Commuters With Morning Treats

January 14, 2020

On Thursday [Jan 9], members of the Southampton Parish Council were at the Rockaway ferry stop to meet and greet commuters and wish them a happy new year.

The commuters on the 8:00am and 8:20am ferries were treated to free juice, water, fruit, and pastries to take with them as they began their day.

Chair of Southampton Parish Council Stacey-Lee Williams said, “This is the second time we have surprised the commuters with pastries, and it’s just a small way to let them know that Council is here for Parish residents, and we hope to be a symbol of community for the Parish.”

Earlier in the month, as it does every year, Council donated a $50 grocery voucher to every senior who resides in Dr. Cann Park, the senior’s residence also within the Rockaway area.

Ms Williams said, “The residents were very grateful and members always come away feeling extremely fulfilled after spending some time with these deserving residents.”

On March 5, the Parish Council is inviting the public to attend a Fun Walk that it is hosting, with the event beginning at Whale Bay and ending at Wadson’s Farm.

    Nice gesture from the council. On another note, the bathrooms and trash need improvement. Trash is not collected often enough and the bathrooms need to be cleaned regularly. Every time I use them I notice that they have not been cleaned properly.
