Councillor Ashter Nembhard 15.08.1956-1994
In recognition of the contributions of the late Ashter Nembhard of Gaga Street, Townhead, Westmoreland to the development of Social Amenities across Townhead and surrounding areas. Ashter was educated at the local Townhead Primary School under the tutorledge of Mrs Ura Welch and all the teachers of that era. After working at the MooYoungs business at Frome he ventured into politics where he was defeated at his first election. However he was elected as a Parish Councillor for the Cornwall Mountain Division on his second attempt.
Ashter wore many hats during his short life on earth. He was News Correspondent, worked with the Social Development Commission promoting Local Youth Clubs activities across the parish of Westmoreland. Most importantly for me he was the originator of Walker Kickstone and Company as he would travel the length and breathe of Jamaica drumming up support for any CAUSES that he believed in.
Some of his greatest achievements are getting piped water and electricity connections into some local areas making life more bearable for the inhabitants of the communities. Getting the Rights for People to Settle on Prospect Park, one of the fasting growing Settlement Community in the History of Westmoreland. Ashter was instrumental in seeking and getting Local and International Aids from all corners of the Globe in aid of the many Youth Clubs throughout the length and breathe of Westmoreland. Ashter was one of the most generous person who lived on this EARTH. Hope he finds Joy & Eternal Peace. Refer to https://fight4justiceadvocacy.business.site for more
