(PLTM) - An invitation has been extended to the public by the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) to spend quality time with members of one’s immediate and extended family.
Tomorrow August 5 will mark the observance of the first Family Friday.
According to a bulletin issued by the RVIPF, “this Friday and every first Friday of the month, families are encouraged to reset values and restore hearts for the sake of the child, the young man or woman, and the elders within the community.”
Persons are encouraged to host and attend events in the curtilages of their homes, or select restaurants which will commemorate the day by offering significant discounts to dining parties comprising of 7 or more persons. Some of these participating restaurants are Village Cay Marina, Sebastians by the Sea, Leverick Bay, and the Anegada Beach Hotel.
Discount cards can be collected at the front of the Road Town Police Station or at the Police Headquarters.
Members of the public are also asked to take photos of Friday’s family activities and post them with the hashtag #FamilyFridaysBVI. Persons who participate are eligible to claim family prizes.
The initiative is a collaboration between the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force and the BVI Chamber of Commerce and Hotel Association (BVICCHA). It is intended to facilitate the restoration of family ties, foster meaningful connections between relatives, and ultimately build stronger communities throughout the Virgin Islands.
