Tribute soon to sugar workers


Share post:

THOSE COUNTLESS folks who helped to build the sugar cane industry and the Crop Over festival will be getting their own monument.

And, said Minister of Culture Stephen Lashley, there will be a national competition to determine what form that monument will take.

He made the revelation at a church service at the St James Parish Church yesterday to herald the start of the Crop Over season.

He told the congregation that he had recently got Cabinet to agree to the erection of a national monument in honour of the unsung heroes whose past work had led to the modern sugar industry and to Crop Over.
