‘Save Evesham’ march and rally aiming to create awareness of crime


A march and rally will be held this Sunday in Evesham in an effort to “save Evesham” from gun violence and crime.

The event is being planned by a group of concerned residents of Evesham and surrounding communities who met on July 24, 2014, and collectively condemn the upsurge of gun violence and crime in that community.{{more}}

“As concerned residents, we have taken several initiatives to revive community spirit, create an awareness of the impact of such negative actions on our community and to encourage and promote a safe and positive environment for our youth and the elderly,” a release from the organizers said.

Sunday’s rally, which begins at 3 p.m. will be held under the theme: “All Hands on Deck to Save Evesham.”

The march is scheduled to commence outside the Evesham Methodist School, with a procession accompanied by the Royal St Vincent and the Grenadines Police Band, along the main road to Evesham and ending at the Windsor Gap with a rally. There will be a prayer walk along the way to declare peace, break the chains of crime and violence over the community by the respective churches.
