President of the Jamaica Agriculture Society, JAS, Norman Grant says he’s satisfied that all health requirements will be met in time for the staging of the Denbigh Agricultural show scheduled for August.

This, after the Clarendon Health Department raised several concerns last month about the state of the grounds to host the event.

After meeting with health officials certain criteria had been required for the agricultural show to avoid being closed down.

In a statement yesterday, Mr. Grant says several actions have already been taken while others are ongoing.

The Clarendon Health Department is again scheduled to inspect the grounds on July 17 and provide the JAS with a report on the showground readiness.

The JAS says this would give it the minimum 2 and half weeks before the show to address any further gaps identified after the inspection.
