“The official week of activities is actually from the 22-26 of May. That is our focus week and during that [period] we have designated it so that we can give back to our customers in a small way, so I would like to say that it is a small token of our big appreciation,” said Ms. Thompson, adding that SKELEC appreciates customers who pay on a regular basis.“Today is a very active day for us. We kicked off the day with our school visits. This is something we have been doing for the last four years. So, normally throughout the month we would visit a number of our primary schools just to give them an idea of what SKELEC is all about.”
The customer service manager said that an important aspect of the month of May is the consumer visits, which are scheduled for every Wednesday andFriday, as part of the celebrations – the first being held today, Wednesday, May 03.
