Bialla gets new bus stop

The National, Monday July 11th, 2016

The people of Bialla, West New Britain, now have a new bus stop shelter and waiting area thanks to the Bank of South Pacific (BSP).
The bus stop was handed over by BSP staff as part of their community project.
According to a statement, the staff assisted with the project through digging up gutters around shelter, painting seats, posts and frames.
They also installed rubbish bin stands and did a clean up, while the construction was done with the support of a local contractor.
Meanwhile, the branch also donated a 9000-litre water tank to Vilelo Primary School located outside of the town in the Government Land Settlement block.
The school does not have a water supply plant and relies on two water tanks. The tanks cater for about 400-plus students and staff with their families.
Bialla Local Level Government manager Sabina Misili and Vilelo Primary School Principal Leo Pokas expressed gratitude for the bank’s contribution to the community.
BSP New Guinea Islands manager Jeffrey Singer said the bank recognised the need to improve living standards in communities where they lived and operated.
“While we stand as a corporate organisation, our staff are part of the community. Our vision also aligns BSP to be the leading financial services provider in our chosen markets, helping customers, staff, shareholders and communities prosper,” he said.
