HISTORIAN ROBERT “BOBBY” MORRIS is appealing for Barbadian support for the just-launched 1627 Foundation, established to develop a five-year plan of projects and promotional activities centred on the historic Charter of Barbados signed in 1652.
And he has suggested the document might be the basis for any development effort in Oistins “to keep building the economic prospects of the town”.
During a ceremony in Oistins yesterday commemorating the 360th anniversary of the signing of the charter, Morris said: “. . . We hope to have your support in the future as we take our foundation to Barbados and ask the buy-in of our countrymen of all persuasions, and the support of all who love life, liberty, freedom and Bimshire.”
He said the idea of the 1652 Foundation was to establish “Barbados’ Brand” as the leader in democracy in the world and to show the island’s development as a model.
