The member of parliament serving for the Castries South has always been constant in organizing events for the people of Saint Lucia, and he also actively takes an interest in community affairs, which mainly include,

– Taking part in public gatherings

– Organizing events for public welfare

– To have one-to-one talks with the members of the constituency to understand the on-ground knowledge of Castries South better.

While keeping in mind the public welfare, the government of Saint Lucia has also approved barrel concession for the Christmas Season of 2023.

It is to be noted that the number of barrels that would meet the requirements for the concession would be restricted to two per household.

It is to be added in the Government of Saint Lucia’s remarks that electronics items are comprehensively excluded from the concessions.

However, the items that are being sanctioned to this concession will attract a Customs Service Charge, which is fixed at the rate of six per cent (6%).

Moreover, as the veil of night falls on Saint Lucia, the island’s celebrated nightlife emerges. From legendary “jump up” street festivities to full-moon beach parties to club-hopping, Saint Lucia remains the first choice of travel enthusiasm.
