April 20th 2015 – Successful Beach Cleanup

Over the weekend hundreds of supporters and sponsors turned out to take part in the first ever “Nuh Dutty Up Robin’s Bay” beach clean up. It was a successful day with each participant being placed in teams and each team being responsible for different areas across the stretch of beaches along the Robin’s Bay coast line. Proceeds from the plastic bottle drive from the clean up are in aid of the Robin’s Bay Primary School fencing project. We want to say thanks to all those who lend their time, efforts and means in making this cleanup a reality and a success.

Sponsors and Organizers of the project includes: Strawberry Fields Together, Green Castle Estate, Respect Jamaica, Sankey Party, St. Mary Parish Development Committee, Robin’s Bay Citizen Association and the Police Youth Groups and other merchants. We want to say thanks to Lee’s Block Factory donated the use of a bulldozer.

Strawberry Patch Cafe and Grill was featured in today’s Jamaica Observer’s Lifestyle. According the editor Howard Pottinger –

“Jamaica Observer Table Talk Food Awards judge for the parish of St Mary Howard Pottinger takes us to Robin’s Bay, St Mary, for a taste of what he reckons is the best chicken in the parish and perhaps Jamaica…

Strawberry Fields Together is a rustic, homely resort in Robin’s Bay and a fixture in my childhood memories from my times on the beach there. Its restaurant, the Strawberry Patch, is my pick today and the star on the menu, is, arguably the best fried chicken in St Mary, and dare I say, Jamaica!

It was a review from my brother that prompted me to try it for myself. He wrote this after trying the chicken at Strawberry Patch. I couldn’t agree more:

“Fried chicken in Jamaica is no simple matter of just dropping a piece of chicken into hot oil. With all due respect to our big brother up North, our version is a notch above. Starting with the seasonings, then the breading and the gravy — yes, gravy! Spooned generously over it as it bubbles and squeaks on our plate next to the rice and peas and steamed veggies or cole slaw. The breading is carefully seasoned and primed to receive, enhance, and be enhanced by the gravy that is spooned over it just before it’s served.”
