– West End residents commending Hon Andrew A. Fahie on the work being done in the First District
WEST END, Tortola, VI – Following the passage of Hurricane Irma on September 6, 2017, Honourable Andrew A. Fahie (R1), Leader of the Opposition along with members of the West End community have been working tirelessly to get their community cleanup. The community even started a clean-up campaign.
This initiative was started in an effort to help preserve the mangroves that were damaged during the hurricane.
The clean-up campaign continued on Saturday October 21, 2017 in West End, from the bridge at Frenchman’s Cay.
“When we’re finished with the mangrove area in the West it will look even better than before Hurricanes Irma and Maria,” emphasised Hon Fahie.
The Opposition Leader is pleading for more persons to join in the community clean-up campaign to bring back the territory to where it once was and better.
He said, “More hands always makes the burden lighter. Great community spirit. Great BVI pride. Together we will make the BVI stronger than ever. To God be the glory.”

“I really love how the West End community is coming together to rebuild our territory. Slowly but surely we will build back our home,” said Ms Lewis, with a smile on her face.
She also commented that she appreciates how Hon Fahie is assisting with the clean-up, adding that it shows that he is a “selfless” person.
