Saluting Leotta Burke the visionary
Negative and ultimately depressing reports, from my beloved hometown of Brittons Hill, was eventually submerged by the news that the Caribbean Womens League, founded by the late Leotta Burke, a progressive community visionary, had celebrated its 60th anniversary.
That such an organisation had its roots in Britton’s Hill – Brittons Cross Road, to be exact; firmly places Brittons Hill in the forefront of the Caribbean integration movement. Note, Burke had the vision and foresight, to name it the Caribbean Womens League.
I therefore join in wishing the League many more years, and hope that it bats on to one hundred and more. I also publicly call on all genuine Brittons Hill residents, to form effective alliances with all law enforcement personnel, in extinguishing the fire of anti-social behaviour in our “Hill”.
We cannot allow the vision and contribution of Leotta Burke and many others to be replaced by the activities of deviant elements.
