Statoil's team lends gives a special gift to the G.B. Children's Home

FREEPORT, Grand Bahama -- In keeping with its commitment to give back to the community, Statoil South Riding Point, which has been operating in Eastern Grand Bahama for 40 years, reached out once again to the GB Children's Home with a special donation from the staff.
Staff members from Statoil South Riding Point took the call to give back to the community personally and came up with a special donation of a 42" flat screen TV with built-in DVD player - providing for wonderful entertainment for years to come for the children. "At Statoil South Riding Point, we believe in giving back to our community and we wanted to give the children something special that they could use and really enjoy," explained Mr. Michael Regis, (Warehouse Assistant for Procurement and Logistics), who presented the Home with the gift along with Mr. Julian Fox (Welder, Statoil's Maintenance & Modification Department) and Mr. Bartholomew Mitchell (Coordinator SSU for Statoil's Safety & Security Unit). All three men are also instructors for the Smith System Driver Improvement Course for Statoil South Riding Point Employees.
The 42" flat screen TV/DVD combination will provide for wholesome entertainment and educational opportunities for the children who have already made good use of the donation. "We really wish to thank Statoil, its management and employees who have supported us in many ways," said Mrs. Geneva Rutherford, GB Children's Home Executive Committee. "This is such a special donation for the children - knowing that it is something they will be enjoying... watching movies, educational programmes and DVDs. We are very grateful that this group of exceptionally trained professionals from Statoil considered us and gave such a thoughtful gift for the children to enjoy for a long time to come," she added.

Christie thanks Chinese for National Stadium gift
Christie thanks Chinese for National Stadium gift

Opposition Leader Perry Christie said yesterday the handover of the new Thomas A. Robinson National Stadium to The Bahamas government represents the fulfillment of a promise he made to the youth of the nation more than seven years ago.

The People's Republic of China turned over the $30 million stadium to the government on Wednesday. Chines Ambassador to The Bahamas Hu Shan visited Christie's downtown office yesterday to officially thank him and the Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) for the role they played in bringing the project to fruition.

Christie, who is a former long jumper, told Ambassador Hu that he wished he would have had the opportunity to jump in such a magnificent" stadium.

"I want to add my thanks to the Chinese and the people of China for this extraordinary gift," Christie said. The 15,000-seat facility sits on more than 450 acres of land that will be further developed to enhance the world-class stadium.

On Wednesday evening, Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham was handed the key to the future site of an International Association of Athletic Federations (IAAF) and International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) certified facility.

The handover took place about two years after the stadium project started. Christie said when his government began negotiations with the Chinese for the stadium, it was under the premise that the facility would be built for the youth.

"My sole interest was to provide a gift and legacy for the young people of our country," he said.Christie also thanked the ambassador for the design changes he requested which allow the facility to act as a hurricane shelter.

"I am pleased with what I saw. It is exactly as I envisaged it when I made my state visit to China in 2004," Christie added.
Ambassador Hu, through a Chinese interpreter, also thanked Christie.
The government recently signed contracts to develop the land surrounding the stadium. The complete transformation of the complex will take about a year, according to officials.

Improvements to the roads and changes to some facilities will take place.
In April the government signed a $48.5 million contract with two Bahamian companies for the Queen Elizabeth Sports Centre Redevelopment Project, an undertaking that is expected to catapult New Providence into a premier sports tourism destination.
The project is separate from the stadium.
