Small Islands Voice Display Board

A specially constructed interactive display board (4 ft x 8 ft with two folding wings) has been made.

Displays are specially prepared according to the nature of the event. The public are invited to comment on the displays, to answer the questions and to put their written ideas in a suggestion box. Small prizes are offered for the best answers and comments. A second board is being constructed for use in Nevis. The board has been displayed at several events, which are described below.
