The popular Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club (RHTY&SC) continues to show class off the cricket field. The club is hosting its seventh annual Christmas Village in the compound of the Rose Hall Town Primary School from December 22 to December 24, and gates will be opened from 16:00h. The Christmas Village would be held under very strict COVID-19 guidelines.
According to the RHTY&SC, “Our objectives are to promote the real tradition of the season, to promote family valves, to offer safe and clean fun for the kids, and to attract visitors to our small township. This promises to be the best ever village, with lots of fun, while the kids would be able to win attractive prizes.

“No alcohol would be allowed into the village, and no smoking as well. No loud music, and patrons would be allowed a maximum of twenty minutes in the venue as part of our COVID-19 regulations.
“Bring the entire family along for an evening of unbelievable fun and relaxation; you would not regret it.”
Presently the teams are also distributing hundreds of food hampers and special Christmas packages, with the support of West Indies player Shimron Hetmyer and his wife Nirvani. The club would be sharing out a total of$3.5 million worth of food items, with the couple donating $2.2 million.
Additionally, the club’s 12 teams have started the distribution of 1000 special Christmas packages to single-parent and less-fortunate families. The packages include apples, walnuts, biscuits, Smalta, juices, and sweets.
National cricketers Guadakesh Motie, Leon Johnson, Christopher Barnwell and Shimron Hetmyer are among the sponsors of the Christmas packages. All members of the St Francis Xavier Roman Catholic Church of Port Mourant have received a package, as has every child at the Canaan and Camal children’s Homes.
Members of the church which played a major role in the development of the RHTY&SC also received special Christmas gifts, food hampers and toys for kids, while the teams also sponsored a feeding programme and a well-attended Christmas Concert.
