Heritage bus tour a hit
THE CROP OVER Heritage Bus Tour will be a fixture on the Sweetest Summer Festival calendar.
Even before the first of two tours had been completed yesterday evening, Minister of Culture Stephen Lashley was talking about ways the tour could be enhanced in the coming years.
Speaking to the DAILY NATION during the penultimate stop at the slave burial ground at Newton, Christ Church, Lashley said he was “humbled” by the entire experience.
“The response has been phenomenal. The turnout to this heritage tour just underscores the importance of what the NCF (National Cultural Foundation) is trying to do to bring about more awareness of our heritage; and also to ground it in the context of Crop Over,” he added.
