Mr. Henderson Bass and Kathy Payne signed the MOU on behalf of the Antigua & Barbuda Softball Association for the management of the Community grounds at the Princess Margaret School. The ABSA is expected to work closely with the school in respect of management of the grounds.

The other MOU was signed by Mr. John Weston, on behalf of the Jennings Sports Club, for the management of the Jennings Playing Field.

The initiative to give management status and Community Based Ownership to sporting associations and bonafide Community organizations started earlier this year.

According to Planning Officer in the Ministry of Sports, Mrs. Anne Jonas, “the aim is to encourage Community based ownership of public sports and recreational venues with a view to building capacity within the organizations and increasing the level of participation and performance in sports and recreation in well managed venues.”

Mrs. Jonas explained that the MOU will be for one year, in the first instance, with the option to renew for two (2) year periods thereafter. The property will, however, remain in the name of the Crown, Jonas said.
