From The Archives: A home in the Oval
SIR GARFIELD SOBERS has moved – the statue, that is.
The 20-foot replica of cricket’s greatest player was moved from the Garfield Sobers Roundabout in Wildey, St Michael, where it had been for over three years, and is now at Kensington Oval.
Early yesterday, workmen took down the statue and were quick in setting it up at the new home, near the entrance of the Sir Garfield Sobers Players’ Pavilion, just alongside the new Pickwick Walk.
The statue is part of the overall Kensington Oval re-development project as the island prepares to host matches in the 2007 International Cricket Council World Cup.
