Perry Christie stated on Tuesday that Fox Hill is poised for further community development through “expansion and remediation” of the Community Centre.

He announced at the Fox Hill Day Service at St. Paul’s Baptist Church that the Inter-American Development Bank, through a grant occasioned by Minister of National Security the Hon. Dr. Bernard Nottage, has made provision for a further improvement of the centre, which, he added “is to serve the community – to serve the children and adults in the community.”

Joining the Prime Minister in visiting St. Paul’s, St. Mark Native Baptist and Mt. Carey Union Baptist Churches in Fox Hill that day were Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Works and Urban Development the Hon. Philip Davis, Minister of National Security the Hon. Dr. Bernard Nottage, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Immigration and Fox Hill MP the Hon. Fred Mitchell, Minister of Social Services and Community Development the Hon. Melanie Griffin, and Minister of State for Investments the Hon. Khaalis Rolle.

Also announced that day was the latest update on the land for the building of a Junkanoo “shack” for the Fox Hill Congos group.

Prime Minister Christie also said that he wanted to use the opportunity to pay tribute to all of the “fallen warriors” who have died.

“We sit on occasions such as this one and we watch our future — the children — and we have reason to reflect…. There are people who accompanied us on occasions such as this one, who are no longer with us: they have passed on,” he said.

“Officials in the Fox Hill branch who would be here, and give donations symbolic of the work of the branch in the community; the other warriors who were in the politics of Fox Hill, who have passed to their ‘eternal reward’ — Lionel Davis, Frank Edgecombe, for example, all of the religious leaders who have given much to make Fox Hill what it is today — I just simply want to pay tribute to them for the important role they played on the journey, during the journey, in being major contributors to the wellbeing of the Fox Hill community and the wellbeing of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas,” Prime Minister Christie added.
