And while we were covering the district final games at the People’s Stadium football field today, we could not help but notice the dilapidated state of the changing rooms. Upon further checks, the facility which was constructed by the Belize Natural Energy Trust several years ago, is not serving its purpose. The ceilings are falling apart, the facility is flooded, the stalls broken, and the stench of urine and feces were overwhelming. Our calls placed to find out more led us to Chairman of the National Sports Council in Orange Walk Town, Derick Gillett. Gillett told us that the facility was never handed over to the council by the Charitable Trust and since its construction, has been targeted over the years by vandals. And with public scrutiny mounting, Gillett says the council plans on renovating the entire area in the coming months. We’ll keep monitoring this story….
