Remembering David Thompson
The Democratic Labour Party (DLP) will be holding a week of activities to honour former Prime Minister, the late David Thompson who died last year on October 23.
The inaugural annual David Thompson Memorial Week starts on October 23 and ends October 30. Thompson died last October 23.
Party general secretary George Pilgrim said the week was a reflection of Thompson’s mass appeal to the public and his ability to communicate with all walks of life.
