Lashley: NCF can’t do it alone

Despite early notice that there will be one cavalcade this year, Minister of Culture Stephen Lashley has reported a lack of response from the private sector. 

“You would remember that when we announced last year that the NCF (National Cultural Foundation) would only be having one cavalcade, there were members of the private sector that were saying that if they had known from beforehand, they would have come on board and staged more cavalcades . . . . This year, in January I gave ample notice that the NCF will only be having one mega cavalcade, and I was waiting anxiously with bated breath to see the members of the private sector coming on board.

“To date there has not been a take-up of that,” he told the media, following the launch of the second annual Christ Church Carnival, held at the Wotton Pavilion Thursday night. (Green Bananas Media)
