St Philip parish project launched


Share post:

A SCENIC TOUR, a food guide and the commemoration of a historic slave revolt nearly 200 years ago were among treats for visitors and residents to “taste, tour and treasure” the nation’s largest parish, as St Philip kicked off a community-based tourism project in the lead-up to Independence celebrations.

The project – Taste, Tour, Treasure Come A Visitor . . . Leave A Philippine – will also produce a booklet on St Philip’s rich heritage, stage a cultural extravaganza and give small business operators a chance to showcase products made in St Philip, said parish ambassadors Vanessa Seaton and Darren Watson.

Seaton and Watson unveiled the project to specially invited guests, including Attorney General and MP for St Philip South Adriel Brathwaite, at the recent launch of the St Philip Community Independence Celebrations at the nation’s oldest hotel – the  Crane Resort.
