The Laguna Youth Club’s Easter Fun Day and Community Event, with the support of the Laguna Tenants Group and the Royal Gibraltar Police, took place on Saturday 23 March.
The idea for this event came about over a month ago and, after a lot of planning and effort, the youth club, in conjunction with the Tenant’s Association and RGP, were able to deliver what was unquestionably an enjoyable day for all.
Responding to the recent GSD statement on Gibraltar’s failure to meet its obligations under the International Organisation of Securities Commissions (‘IOSCO’), the Government has insisted that it is important to clarify that Gibraltar is not blacklisted. They add that Gibraltar is on the same list of non-signatories as it was when the GSD was in office.
‘The MMOU was established in 2002. The GSD themselves did nothing to progress the signing by Gibraltar of the MMOU. In 2009, Gibraltar indicated that it was committed to sign the MMOU. The GSD failed to secure signature of the MMOU by December 2011.
In a statement released today, the GSD has welcomed the Government’s recent announcement for the local training of nurses. The party adds that the initiative is a learning pathway that started in September 2009, when the NVQ level 2 in Health & Social Care was first launched. The Opposition insists that it is thanks to the GSD that nurses have the tools necessary ‘not only to be proficient at their practice through continuous professional development, but also have the means to develop as nurse managers’.
In the next two weeks, several injured soldiers will be visiting Gibraltar, courtesy of a charity called ‘Give Us Time’. The charity, founded by former UK Defence Secretary Dr. Liam Fox, aims to provide holidays for soldiers recently returned from operational duties. These soldiers require quality time with their families in order to reintegrate into family life and to recuperate after six difficult months apart.
