Tipperary Hall integral to Community Psyche

Tipperary Hall integral to Community Psyche

Buxton Village, Guyana – December 20, 2010.  This report was carried in the Guyana Chronicle on December 21, 2010.

President tells Buxtonians… …”should not be seen as merely a building”


THE long-cherished dream of Buxtonians that their Tipperary Hall will be restored will soon become a reality – another promise kept by President Bharrat Jagdeo.

The ground-breaking ceremony was held at the construction site in Buxton  in the afternoon of December 20, 2010.

Lecturer in Sociology at UG, described by youthful Thashana Hiles as a community advocate, wife, mother, daughter and friend to all, MC Ms Barbara Thomas-Holder, expressed sincere appreciation and deep gratitude to President Jagdeo, commending him for his second appearance at Buxton within four months.

She noted that the importance of the occasion lay more in the groundbreaking task he was about to perform for the community, rather than in his presence.

She described the Tipperary Hall as a landmark and a premier venue in its time, having served, not only the residents of Buxton in its heyday, but also other communities along the East Coast corridor; also residents of Georgetown and Linden.
