With the support of over 50 daily local volunteers including women groups, it will be completed and commissioned on 22nd September 2016.

There will be a grand durbar of dignitaries including Chiefs, Members of Parliament, District Chief Executives, head teachers, Executives of timber companies and the Forestry Commission.
