Bringing culture home

Social Share

AIRY HILL, ST JOSEPH RESIDENTS took in a piece of Barbados’ past yesterday.

That was thanks to Lorna Knight, who organised an exhibition in recognition of Barbados’ 50th anniversary of Independence.

The showcase, which ends today unless further requested, was held at her home, where friends, family and neighbours gathered to enjoy the cultural event.

The Independence theme was clearly reflected in the blue and yellow décor, Barbadian food and drink, photos of noted figures like Sir Grantley Adams and L. E. “Boy Child” Smith, along with well preserved antiquated items. (LT)
