ANOTHER ATHLETICS season in Barbados is over, but the archaic and hazardous five stands at the National Stadium are still standing and remain out of bounds for spectators.

It will be the same situation with the grounds being used for the semi-finals of the Pic-O-De-Crop calypso competition on July 15.

Lashley, whose portfolio also includes culture and youth, said the relevant documents have been prepared and are awaiting a review from the Ministry of Finance before going to Cabinet.
