L'Anse Noire Collage

 The L’Anse Noire Congregation is situated in the Ward of Toco. Toco is the most northeasterly village on the island of Trinidad in the County of Saint David at the point where the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean meet. Tobago lies about 35 kilometers to the northeast making Toco the closest point in Trinidad to the sister island of Tobago. Prior to 1880 most of Toco’s labouring force came from Tobago and by the 1880s, Toco was populated almost entirely by people from Tobago.
Toco is the home to the successful Toco Foundation which is a model for community-based co-operatives and it operates the only community radio station in the island, Radio Toco. The writer Earl Lovelace was born in Toco. Toco is also the home of the second Olympic gold medalist in national history, javelin great, Keshorn Walcott who incidentally attended the L’Anse Noire Moravian School.
Some of the communities of Toco are Cumana Village, L'Anse Noire, Mission Village, and Monte Video Village. The work at Toco began in several other places before moving to L’Anse Noire in 1905.
