Scores of personnel from the Kingston and St Andrew Municipal Corporation (KSAMC) on Thursday participated in a number of projects to mark Labour Day.

KSAMC representatives said the theme for Labour Day this year was ‘Child Safety… it’s you, it’s me, it’s all ah we!’

KSAMC personnel were seen in the streets from early painting and helping to renovate a number of areas.

·        Installation of a jungle gym

·        Planting of small trees at various sections of the park

·        Painting of murals on a section of the perimeter wall
