Father of Independence Errol Barrow’s birthday last Saturday was celebrated at the Barbados Light Aeroplane Club, which he helped establish.
Saturday was open day at the club’s Christ Church base and from just around 11 a.m. members of the public had an opportunity to tour the facilities, take a flight at special rates and see various demonstrations.
