Buses late for BLP picnic


Share post:

ABOUT 400 Barbados Labour Party faithfuls were left stranded in St George South this morning.

They had gathered at the various collection points for the pre-arranged 9 a.m. pick-up in the seven chartered buses from the Barbados Transport Board to head to East Coast Road for the picnic, but were forced to wait for more than three hours in the sun with their packed baskets.

Their “livid” representative, Dwight Sutherland, drove to the Transport Board’s Weymouth, St Michael headquarters after noon armed with his contract and receipt for close to $3 000, seeking answers.

Sutherland had a heated exchange with Manager Marketing and Communications, Lynda Holder, who is also responsible for charters by the security hut before the two went into a closed door meeting. Holder did not speak to members of the media.

The first five buses reportedly arrived around 12:30 p.m. (YB)
