BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, April 29, 2017 (PLP PR Media Inc.) — As persistent showers characterised St. Kitts’ Atlantic coast early Saturdaymorning April 29, scores of health conscious and walk enthusiasts journeyed to Belle Vue where they joined Prime Minister and Political Leader of the Peoples Labour Party (PLP) Dr the Hon Timothy Harris for his monthly Constituency #7 health walk.
The first walkers had arrived a few minutes to the usual starting time of 5:30 am, but because of the poor weather the majority came slightly later which saw them set off at 5:56 am following a prayer by one of the PLP’s prayer warriors, Mr Erickson Wescott.
