Two local companies showed their
appreciation to Cayman’s seafaring forefathers last week.
Island Paving and Advanced Road
Construction & Paving came together to pave the driveway leading up to the
Seafarers Hall on Shamrock Road in Prospect, George Town.
Cayman Islands’ Seafarers
Association President Hartman DaCosta was very appreciative of the effort.
“This is quite a commendable
gesture from both businesses, as the cost of doing this otherwise would have
been in the region of $10,000,” he said.
Mr. DaCosta added that the new
pavement will serve as a means of easier access to the building, as well as to
enhance the appearance of the Seafarers Hall.
“The value of the property will no doubt increase as a result as well,”
commented Mr. DaCosta.
Formed in 1989, the non-profit
Seafarers’ Association is a group of men who celebrate, preserve and pass down the
seafaring heritage of the Cayman Islands through maintaining regular contact
with the community through their various initiatives. The organisation also provides assistance to
its members in need.
