Mind-your-manners order to residents near cricket stadium

Residents living in the vicinity of the R. Premadasa Stadium at Maligawatte in Colombo have been asked to polish up their etiquette ahead of the cricket World Cup matches to be played there.

These include abstaining from hanging out clothes for drying in public view, putting out garbage on the road sides and engaging in street games such as hop scotch and cricket matches. The etiquette orders have been issued by the Colombo Municipality, the Police and the Urban Development Authority (UDA).

Colombo’s Special Commissioner Omar Kamil said the World Cup was an international event and hence special care must be taken to keep the vicinity of the stadium attractive. “Our country will get a lot of exposure from this event. So, we have told the people to take special care during this time to keep their surroundings neat,” he said.

Officials said the UDA would colour wash all the buildings around the stadium at its own expense.
