The Richard Haynes Boardwalk in Hastings, Christ Church, was transformed into a craft village yesterday when members of the Craft Union of Barbados laid out their jewellery, paintings, batik and art for the public to purchase. Part of the proceeds will benefit the Challenor School, which was chosen as the beneficiary because it needed assistance, said spokesperson and Craft Union member Alison Adams. She added that the money would help the school purchase equipment or effect repairs. The donation was also the union’s way of giving back to the community. Patrons not only got the chance to purchase locally-made craft items, but they were also entertained by calypsonians, the Royal Barbados Police Force Band and the Rose Hill Tuk Band.
