Wil­li­ams as well as fel­low coun­cil­lors, Coun­cil­lor Swarts and Coun­cil­lor Ca­ro­lus and mem­bers of the com­mu­ni­ty, all joi­ned in to bring the re­si­dents of San­ta­vil­le to­get­her in an ef­fort to ce­le­bra­te and e­du­ca­te the youth a­bout their he­ri­ta­ge.

La­dies from the DA and the com­mu­ni­ty we­re hard at work throug­hout the mor­ning pre­pa­ring a tra­di­ti­o­nal me­al of Put­hu Pap and Min­ce S­tew on an o­pen ¿re in tra­di­ti­o­nal three-leg­ged black pots for the lo­cals of San­ta­vil­le.

All in­gre­dients for the he­ar­ty tra­di­ti­o­nal me­al we­re kind­ly do­na­ted by an a­no­ny­mous far­mer for which Wil­li­ams and her te­am are ex­cep­ti­o­nal­ly gra­te­ful.

C­hild­ren and a­dults a­li­ke joi­ned in on the fun - ma­ny we­re dres­sed in tra­di­ti­o­nal out¿ts and spent the day dan­cing and sin­ging.

All in at­ten­dan­ce we­re al­so en­ter­tai­ned by lo­cal Ras­ta­fa­ri­ans who per­for­med dan­ce i­tems and cul­tu­ral pre­sen­ta­ti­ons.

Wil­li­ams said it is im­por­tant to ma­ke days li­ke He­ri­ta­ge Day es­pe­ci­al­ly spe­ci­al for the im­po­ve­ris­hed com­mu­ni­ties “so that we en­coura­ge a spi­rit of pri­de and u­ni­ty in an at­mos­p­he­re that is mo­re of­ten ¿l­led with stress and wor­ries”.
