Don’t destroy beautiful ‘Miss Lucy’

Social Share

Glorious things of Thee are spoken, Zion, city of God.  He whose words cannot be broken, Form’d Thee for his own abode.  On the rock of ages founded . . . – Part of verse 1 of Hymn 545 Hymns A &M.
What is happening to Miss Lucy? Yes ,my Dear Miss Lucy, for she is the only “female” parish in Barbados.
These days she is often in the news whether it be the print or the electronic media with so much negativity and this is of great concern to those of us who love her.
She is such a beautiful and peaceful parish. I do believe that it is hurting Denis Kellman – the parliamentary representative for St Lucy and Minister of Housing. For he thinks very highly of his Miss Lucy with glorious words of her and speaks well also of his Moon Town, which is a very big partof Miss Lucy.
Whenever he speaks, he does so with glory, pride and passion about his dear Miss Lucy.
Why is it that some persons are trying to damage and destroy Miss Lucy? What has gone wrong with her?
She was a very quiet and peaceful place to visit
and live. Come on, please leave Miss Lucy alone. She has provided such lovely places like River Bay, Archer’s Bay and Coves Bay which are favourite places for excursions and picnics.
Outstanding citizens
Many of our outstanding citizens are from St Lucy – people like Bishop Rufus Brome, his brother Rev. Henderson Brome, former Governor of the Central Bank, Calvin Springer; Rev. Keith Griffith, the late Lloyd Austin – former principal of  Grantley Adams Memorial School, Bertie Hinds, a former Deputy Commissioner of Police; the late Prime Minister Errol Walton Barrow, and last, but not least, the Acting Commissioner of Police Tyrone Griffith.
All are great people from St Lucy.
To all those who are damaging Miss Lucy, stop, think and have some pride in yourself and be proud of one’s country because Miss Lucy is also part of our great country.
Although you may be having some challenging times, you have contributed to the lives of many Barbadians, Miss Lucy, we are all proud of you.  May God Bless You.
