Next Step group to start voluntary work, to reproduce deceased member’s songs |07 January 2022
Next Step Group has announced that it will start its first voluntary activity for this year on Saturday January 8 where the group will pick up rubbish opposite the Fish Tail restaurant up to Espace building.
The leader of the Group Sonny Dogley has also said that this year, apart from producing some new singles, he is planning to reproduce some songs of the group’s deceased member Patrick Octave to keep his memories alive.
With regard to the voluntary work, Mr Dogley noted that the group often cleans up the mentioned area but still people congregate there during lunch hour to eat and drink and always leave their rubbish behind.
“This area falls in the English River district and it is part of our community so we see it as our responsibility to keep it clean,” Mr Dogley remarked.
“Recently Next Step gave a fresh coat of paint to a building at the Ste Elizabeth Convent and we are very grateful to everyone who has helped us or joined us in our activities,” said Mr Dogley.
The Next Step is also planning to carry out some voluntary work on Praslin and La Digue and it is welcoming any individual who would like to join them in their activities or sponsor them in whatever way they can.
Meanwhile Mr Dogley has said this year Next Step is also planning to step up its musical activities more specifically to honour one of its members, Patrick Octave, who has passed away.
Any individuals who would like to support Next Step in this initiative can get in touch with Mr Dogley on 2541510.
