Sandals Grande staff engage in clean up exercise ahead of reopening
Employees of the Sandals Grande Saint Lucian Spa & Beach Resort facilitated a cleanup exercise along the Pigeon Island Causway ahead of the reopening this week.
The entrance of Pigeon Island has been a site for illegal disposal of garbage over the years, an issue the Saint Lucia Solid Waste Management Authority has been faced with and unable to stop.
According to Miss Judy Deterville of Sandals Resorts: "Team members were engaged in a vigorous process geared to reopening the resort which extended to the main gateway or roadway which connects Sandals Grande to the highway.
Miss Deterville noted that the initiative has been an ongoing project by the employees.
"Our team members championed and joined in efforts to clean up the causeway - again, a task that is repeatedly undertaken under normal circumstances, to keep the environment pristine."
The Resort, she says, officially opens once the first flight arrives into Saint Lucia on July 9, 2020.
"As you know by now, Sandals Grande St Lucian Spa & Beach Resort has recently become certified and as such is ready to reopen to clients.
The resort underwent a rigorous inspection and has received the Certificate of Compliance with Covid-19 protocols award.
This means that in keeping with the Saint Lucia industry protocols, the resort can accommodate visitors because guests and staff alike will be looked after according to the highest standards set to manage the COVID-19 virus."
