Pottery drive in St Andrew
The Chalky Mount potteries are on a drive to attract more people to the St Andrew businesses and preserve an important part of Barbadian heritage at the same time.
A month-long expo got under way on July 6 and will run through August 10. During that period visitors can cash in on the many bargains available at Springer’s, Highland and Iseph Potteries.
Coordinator of the expo, John Springer, said the Chalky Mount Village has been a part of the local heritage for more than 250 years, but popularity had dwindled over the years to the point where most people don’t even know that the businesses still exist.
In an effort to help sustain the heritage of the village, Springer said a group of youngsters had gone through a training programme and were now established. (YB)
