Nearly 200 Vendors To Benefit From New Registration Programme

Some 178 vendors are in line to benefit from a new registration programme to be launched Monday by the Castries Constituency Council (CCC), the council has announced.

The initiative is set to be launched at the Castries City Hall from 5:30 p.m.

According to the CCC, it follows several consultations held last year with merchants from the Vendors arcade, provisions and craft Markets and roadside traders.

The consultations highlighted the significant components and benefits from the programme.

Speaking ahead of the programme launch, Castries Mayor Peterson Francis said the idea is to make things better for vendors.

He added that he is ‘ecstatic’ that the programme is finally being launched, according to a release from the CCC.

As part of that programme vendors will receive, among other benefits, free access to public comfort stations, job letters identifying them as authorised vendors, ID cards, and tent packages for road-side vendors, the release stated.

    Godly Living in an Ungodly Age

    Titus 1

    Our Founding Fathers created a governing framework based upon biblical principles. Slowly, we have changed from “one nation under God” to a group of people who no longer want Him to be involved.

    Tragically, we’ve become, in numerous ways, an ungodly nation: many are driven by materialism and power; immorality and rebellion are prevalent; empty philosophy and false doctrine are widely acceptable. Underlying it all is a vocal decision to take God out of the nation’s “official business.”

  2. Were you going to place them?,you will give them more of our pavements,to make life more miserable to all us pedestrians.We have to walk on the road most of the time,because of all these vendors.Course I see the CCC making a lot of money,every day,collecting from the vendors.Im sure shop owners disgusted,they have to be cursing you

  3. That’s what scares most vendors from enrollment of these sort. It bring the impression of more load and less output. I would imagine that the breaking down of the paliment building and the printry would have given ample spacious lodging for more vendors;but it would seem that the government has changed their minds on that initial email.
