Preserving the Tacarigua Savannah

Tacarigua, one of the oldest villages in Trinidad, has always been a peaceful village. In fact, it has been so peaceful that there has never been a police station in that village.1 One suspects that the presence of its savannah, the second largest in the country after Queen's Park Savanna in Port of Spain-that is, until the construction of homes on those magnificent grounds in the 1950s,-the gentle-flowing waters of its river to which all repaired on a Sunday, and the peaceful mixture of its peoples-Hindus in Paradise, Muslims in Dinsley, and Africans in St. Mary's-all added to the attractiveness of the place and mutual respect each accorded to the other. In a way, it could be said that the Tacarigua Savannah held the village together. It certainly was the central spot where everyone gathered.

Thought of Train

My name is Dion La Foucade and I run a football camp for children during the long vacation. After early childhood in Point Fortin, I lived in Carenage and attended St Anthony’s College, where I was named player of the year for the school in 1987. I took up football coaching soon after school and have not looked back. I live in Diego Martin now. I came close to getting married to a girl from England. But that did not work out because of my hectic lifestyle.
