Pinewood Festival 2017

Tribune Staff Reporter

POLITICAL foes in the Pinewood constituency launched a collaborative effort on Wednesday to establish the Pinewood Foundation and that community’s first festival event.

Reuben Rahming, who secured more than half the votes cast in Pinewood during the May 10 general election, called the foundation’s strategy “a sustainable one,” adding that it will engage the community in its own self-development as it looks to bring awareness to the plight of residents.

“We do this for the good of Pinewood,” the Free National Movement MP said during a press conference in the House of Assembly’s Majority Room. “Together we can do all things, but divided we cannot live a sustainable life.”

The foundation is the brainchild of former independent candidate Alecia Hart; former Democratic National Alliance candidate Lincoln Bain and former People’s Movement candidate Glen Rolle. It has received the backing and support of Mr Rahming and former area MP Khaalis Rolle.
