Participation in a Hotel and Tourism Association meeting

Five students and one teacher from the Small Islands Voice/Sandwatch team were invited to the general meeting of the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Hotel and Tourism Association, at the Gingerbread Restaurant on Bequia, on 5th August 2003. A presentation was given on the Sandwatch programme, and the team had the opportunity to give their opinions on tourism and development issues.

The gathering was quite impressed, and congratulated the team on their work. The Director of Tourism has offered her support, and assistance.

The Association has written a proposal to Disney Movies in relation to the movie 'Pirates of the Caribbean' asking for assistance in raising funds towards purchasing a boat, that would assist in the monitoring and policing of Admiralty Bay, Bequia. This would improve water safety and the tourism product. The team has pledged their support for this project.
