NOA Sport and Environment plants trees


The Sport and Environment Commission of the National Olympic Academy, the educational arm of the National Olympic Committee, today planted four trees at the Arnos Vale Playing Field in tandem with the National Sports Council.

General Secretary of the NOC, Keith Joseph and Chairman of the Sport and Environment Commission, Benedict Charles, were joined by Chairman of the National Sports Council, Mr. 'Teddy' James and Manager of the NSC, Osbourne Browne, in the tree planting exercise to mark World Earth Day in St Vincent
and the Grenadines.

According to Joseph, "the tree planting exercise marks the beginning of a new phase in the work of the NOC in respect of its programme of Sport and the Environment awareness in St Vincent and the Grenadines and extends the relationship with the NSC into yet another area of collaboration".
Mr. James congratulated the NOC on the initiative and express the satisfaction of the organisation in partnering with the NOC in this venture.

Mr. Charles noted that the Sport and Environment Commission was merely seeking to keep the healthy balance with nature by ensuring that the playing fields reflected the importance of the environment to good sports.
Mr. Browne noted the commitment of the NOC to the beautification of sports arena in the state and expressed delight that the process has begun. He noted that together the two organisations can achieve a whole new approach to the development and maintenance of our sports facilities.
