‘Hatters’ on parade
Barbados’ retirees got into top gear, donning colourful hats for the Barbados Association of Retired Persons’ annual Easter Hat Parade and Tea Party at Sunbury House, St Philip, last weekend.
Fewer patrons than customary turned out for the affair, but participants’ usual high level of creativity was evident, with imaginative interpretations of the Easter theme “BARP on the Move, Get into Top Gear” by the twelve Easter Bonnet competition entrants.
Hazel Norville carried off the top prize and also won the prize for the Most Imaginative Hat, while first runner-up was Pat Mahy in “All Geared Up.”
Pansy Griffith who has copped the prize for the winning bonnet on several occasions had to settle for second runner-up this time, with her bonnet “BARP on the Move” while Anita Daniel’s “Once in a Blue Moon” brought her the third runner-up position. (GC)
