Guyana Chronicle article.

Georgetown, Guyana - The newly formed Betsy Ground/Goed Bananen Land Police Youth Club, along with the Betsy Ground Triple Star Cricket Club, received a quantity of sports gear, from former policeman Bobby Kewlochand, now resident of the United States of America.

Kewlochand, who once resided at Goed Bananen Land, and played as an all-rounder for his home team, opted not to return to his homeland empty-handed, but instead, to bring with him, several cricket pads, bats, balls, equipment and cash for the respective teams.

The former cop, who served the Guyana Police Force between 1995 and 2004 before migrating, took the opportunity to present the tokens of appreciation to Police ‘B’ Division, Youth and Scout Coordinator and OC No1 Subdivision Assistant Superintendent Guy Nurse.

Nurse was accompanied by Chief Inspector Gregory Springer, who has the responsibility for the East Canje District.

Following the presentation, both officers expressed their appreciation to their former colleague and are optimistic that similar gestures will continue.
