Former PM still active


Share post:

WHAT DOES A former Prime Minister do when he no longer has to deal with affairs of state or travel as much as before?
If he is Owen Seymour Arthur, he spends much time in the quiet outdoors, enjoying the rejuvenating exercise of planting and reaping.
“I grow these for the house,” he said with an expansive wave that seemed to cover his lawn that is bordered by beds of sweet peppers, lettuce, cabbages, beans and other vegetables.
“I give away plants as gifts and give vegetables to my neighbours. I have always liked growing things,” he added.
Pointing to a blossoming plum tree in the middle of the garden, he told the SATURDAY SUN he had “brought that from St Peter when it was a stick”. (RJ)
