7th Northampton in Jamaica

Wednesday 10th August 2016

Since 2000, Seniors from 7th Northampton have visited Jamaica and been involved in school building projects. A group of twelve has just returned having spent two weeks in Ocho Rios working at Exchange Basic School where they built a safe play area for the children, erected a perimeter fence and carried out general refurbishments. The group also paid for a ceiling to be installed in the kitchen and dining areas to ensure the rooms were insect and rodent free.

As well as working the group relaxed at Dunn’s River Falls and at the Blue Hole, where some had to overcome their fears to take the plunge. The group worshipped at Calvary Tabernacle Church in St Ann’s and experienced a very different type of service.

A visit to Kingston included discussions with BB Jamaica at BBHQ and then on to the British High Commission where they shared what they had been doing with Mr David Fitton, the High Commissioner who also told the group about his work and role in Jamaica.

A tiring but extremely valuable two weeks and the Company is already looking to its next visit in 2018.
