SOCIAL SCENE: Honours for ‘sons of soil’


Share post:

HONOREES AND THEIR GUESTS sat under an expansive marquee on the grounds of Government House last week for yet another presentation of insignia of the National Honours and Awards.

The Royal Barbados Police Force Band began playing the National Anthem as soon as the official party headed by Governor General Sir Elliott Belgrave and Lady Belgrave entered and the ceremony got underway.

The range of Barbadians receiving National Honours and Awards represented decades of contributions and it was encouraging to see that senior citizens such as 97-year-old Euline Burrowes, 91-year-old Dr Lawrence Bannister and 81-year-old Jack Hoad being recognised. (GC)
