Laventille West mp Fitzgerald Hinds, yesterday visits the scene of the recent fire, which claimed the life of 9-year-old Aneilla Butlerher at the corner of Sixth Street and Second Avenue, Beetham Gardens.

Member of Parliament for Laventille West Fitzgerald Hinds is urging his constituents to use all opportunities provided to them to improve the community.

In a media release from his constituency office, Hinds said he visited Beetham Gardens to interface with the community.

The release said Hinds, along with Minister of Sport, Shamfa Cudjoe, Ag. Commissioner of Police, McDonald Jacob and officials of the Rotary Club, Port of Spain, gathered at the Beetham Community Centre, to officiate at the launch of the Beetham Vibrations Steel Orchestra and the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Rotary Club and the Inter-Agency Task Force of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service, which will administer and tutor the members of the community, who will populate this band.

The release added that this is to be done with the Rotary Club and the support of other well organized steel bands from the community, as well as, the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service Band.

Hinds addressed the gathering and among other things, urged the residents to make optimum use of this great opportunity, which he said lends the potential for converting the musical skills acquired, into a saleable/commercial asset for their own benefit.

Following this event, the MP took the opportunity to visit the scene of the recent fire, which claimed the life of 9-year-old Aneilla Butler and largely destroyed the family home at the corner of Sixth Street and Second Avenue, Beetham Gardens.

Hinds also reached out to other members of the family, who were affected, but who remained at that location, the media release said.
