Honour coming for seafarers

Social Share

Government is looking to erect “an appropriate monument” to honour local seafarers.

Minister of Tourism and International Transport Richard Sealy made the disclosure yesterday during a service at the Church of the Nazarene in Collymore Rock, St Michael, to launch Maritime Week.

“Eventually, we’re going to erect an appropriate monument to these men and women,” he told the gathering.

It’s unclear what form the monument will take, but Sealy said Government wanted to acknowledge “the tremendous work that has been done for Barbados” by seafarers.
