The Union Island Development Group (UIDG) is on a mission to undertake projects on Union Island that would contribute to a better way of life for residents on the Island. The group is currently working to fence both the Ashton and Clifton Cemeteries.
The group recently received much needed support by way of monetary contribution totaling EC$10,000 dollars from an overseas based organization “Friends of Union Island”, the group is based in North America & the UK.
The cheque was handed over by Ann Hendricks on behalf of the “Friends of Union Island” group.

The Union Island Development Group was formed by several concerned persons on Union Island who shares a common goal. They raise funds by way of BBQs, Cultural Concerts, Dinners and other events on the Island.
With funds raised and other donations, the group successfully completed fencing the front section of the Ashton Cemetary and work is already underway on fencing the Clifton Cemetary.
The Clifton Cemetary will be outfitted with a concrete fence and a gate, the group decided to make the cemetery fencing projects a priority because of the constant damage to flowers and other structures by stray animals.
