A number of items were brought to the table, including the involvement of Sports St. Lucia Inc in overall facility management island wide. Of late, photos along with the hashtag #saveourfields have been circulating on social media, depicting the deplorable state of playing fields throughout the island. Some of the fields in urgent need of attention include the Piaye Playing Field, and the Morne Cayenne Playing Field.
