This year’s edition of the very popular – I Love Xlendi – summer events, has been launched by the Minister for Gozo Justyne Caruana.
Organised by the Munxar Local Council, with the financial support and assistance of the Ministry for Gozo. All the events will take place every weekend during the summer within the beautiful and dramatic backdrop of Xlendi Bay.
The varied line-up of events for I Love Xlendi, will ensure that there is something for all ages to enjoy, starting on the 14th of July until the 15th of September.
Minister Caruana spoke about the commitment of the Ministry for Gozo towards the tourist areas across the island, making sure that they are kept in the best possible state despite the various challenges synonymous with these locations.
She said that as happened last year 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.
The Munxar Mayor Sonia Abela thanked the Minister for this initiative. The Mayor also spoke about the support the Council receives with services provided by the Ministry, such as beach cleaners, maintenance workers, street cleaning and bag collection.
Particularly, she said, as there is a sharp increase in the number of people choosing the location for their summer holidays
Dr Caruana augured that Gozitan, Maltese and tourists appreciate this initiative, which brings together the natural beauty of Xlendi with a cultural summertime programme.
