City walk flashback


Share post:

THE?CITY?came alive last night during the First Citizens Bridgetown By Night Heritage Walk as hundreds were treated to an historical journey by Morris Greenidge and Trevor Marshall.
     The walk, in its second year, is a new staple in the National Cultural Foundation’s Crop Over calendar. It started at the car park of the Barbados Investment and Development Corporation on Princess Alice Highway and proceeded through Pelican Village to Fairchild Street and Broad Street.
    The walk, put on in association with the Barbados Tourism Investment Inc., saw Shaggy Bear tumbling about and the old nut seller displaying her treats.
Some familiar faces were spotted, including MP?for the City Lieutenant Colonel Jeffrey Bostic; chief executive officer of the NCF, Cranston Browne; and Julie Arthur, wife of former Opposition Leader Owen Arthur. (NS)
