The National Sports Council was the recipient of an Industrial Lawn Mower, compliments the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Cricket Association.{{more}}

The mower, a motorised 500cc powered equipment, which cost about US$6000, was handed over by President of the Association, Julian Jack, to Manager of the NSC, Osbourne Browne, at a brief ceremony at the Arnos Vale One Playing Field on Wednesday, December 17th.

Jack said that the mower was originally sourced to be used on the Buccament Bay Playing Field, but was redeployed after there were subsequent arrangements for development to that facility.

The cricket boss also said that the Mower was purchased from funds from the Stanford Initiative.

Browne revealed that it was an excellent piece of equipment and was valuable to the Council’s daily operations, as it will be used for the maintenance of the fields and the preparation of the cricket pitches, at the Arnos Vale, Stubbs, and Sion Hill Playing Fields.

The Council’s Manager said it could not come at a more opportune time, since the one left by the Local Organising Committee for Cricket World Cup has malfunctioned since February and workers had to return to cutting the field using the manual mowers.(RT)
