Fellow villagers: Hastings Daniel, former Deputy Premier – Hensley Daniel and Alstead Pemberton echoed that they were happy that a Cox man seized the opportunity to develop such a project.
Wilroy’s next door neighbour, Alstead Pemberton during his brief remarks said:
The trail is not an ordinary trail. You would be able to see the light house, Montpelier, and the Mondo Track.
Daniel expects Hills and Valleys to grow from strength to strength while Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Tourism, John Hanley extended best wishes from the Ministry and expressed that they are willing to offer assistance where a need arises.
