Plea for heritage funding
THE ISLAND’S Minister of Culture has pleaded with philanthropic citizens to fund the restoration of its historic capital city, while also urging Barbadians to “break the cycle of poor maintenance” of historic buildings.
Stephen Lashley wants more entities like the Tabor Foundation (Barbados) to come forward and pump money into other ventures similar to the Synagogue Redevelopment Project.
He was giving the feature address during the official opening and handing over ceremony of the Synagogue Redevelopment Project at the Jewish Synagogue in The City yesterday.
The ceremony was attended by Minister of Housing Denis Kellman, Opposition Leader Mia Mottley, MP for The City Jeffrey Bostic and former long-standing City MP Dame Billie Miller. (HLE)
