Negative and ultimately depressing reports, from my beloved hometown of Brittons Hill, was eventually submerged by the news that the Caribbean Womens League, founded by the late Leotta Burke, a progressive community visionary, had celebrated its 60th anniversary.
That such an organisation had its roots in Britton’s Hill – Brittons Cross Road, to be exact; firmly places Brittons Hill in the forefront of the Caribbean integration movement. Note, Burke had the vision and foresight, to name it the Caribbean Womens League.
I therefore join in wishing the League many more years, and hope that it bats on to one hundred and more. I also publicly call on all genuine Brittons Hill residents, to form effective alliances with all law enforcement personnel, in extinguishing the fire of anti-social behaviour in our “Hill”.
We cannot allow the vision and contribution of Leotta Burke and many others to be replaced by the activities of deviant elements.
