I Love Xlendi Summer Events – were launched today by the Minister for Gozo Dr Justyne Caruana.
All the events will take place within the beautiful and dramatic backdrop of Xlendi Bay. With something for all ages to enjoy every weekend throughout the summer.
The spectacular line-up of events are organised by the Munxar Local Council and the Ministry for Gozo, together with the Culture Committee.
Minister Justyne Caruana mentioned how important these types of events are, as besides enjoying the natural beauty of Xlendi, visitors can also enjoy a varied programme of entertainment.
Dr Caruana stressed that tourist areas are frequented more during the summer month, therefore creating greater challenges keeping them clean.
To this end, the Minister announced that in Xlendi and Marsalforn, besides the ongoing daily services related to cleaning, there will also be an additional black waste bag collection in the evening.
This new service, on the initiative of the Gozo Ministry, started on the 8th of July with an investment of thousands of euros, the Minister said.
The Mayor of Munxar Carmen Said, thanked the Minister for this initiative. She also spoke about the support that the Council receives with services provided by the Ministry, such as beach cleaners, maintenance workers and street cleaning.
The Chairman of the Xlendi Administrative Committee Mr Mark Busuttil, explained that the I love Xlendi programme will have at least one activity every weekend until the 16th of September.
Minister Justyne Caruana augured that Gozitan, Maltese and tourists appreciate this initiative, which brings together the natural beauty of Xlendi with a cultural summertime programme.
