AS PREPARATIONS for the Guyana leg of Cricket World Cup 2007 gain momentum, another good corporate citizen has added its name to the list of agencies contributing towards making this momentous occasion a huge success for Guyana.

The Neal and Massy Guyana Group Wednesday night launched an impressive beautification project on the front lawns of its Ainlim Building, at Lot 5 Public Road, Ruimveldt.

The project which promotes Guyana’s rich eco-tourism sector was declared open by Minister of Tourism, Industry and Commerce, Manniram Prashad and witnessed by a modest gathering of special invitees and members of the media.

The project, a replica of Guyana’s majestic Kaieteur Falls, mounted in the foreground of the Ainlim facility and towering high above every perceivable surrounding building, is a beauty to behold.

It is animated by a steady and awe-inspiring flow of water, evenly distributed and cascading down the side of the fall in a single drop.

Adding to the beauty of this novel creation, is the illumination offered by the scores of colourful pepper light bulbs, bordering the structure on which it was mounted, creating a kind of carnival atmosphere.

And coming with the package too, are huge colourful paintings of several of Guyana’s prized and coveted bird species, commonly referred to as ‘birds of brilliant plumage’.

At the ceremony, Mr. Prashad thanked Neal and Massy for a well thought out contribution to beautification for CWC – ideally positioned at the gateway to the city.
