All set for new GG
Everything is set for the swearing in of the island’s seventh native Governor General, Justice of Appeal Sandra Mason, today.
There was a hive of activity at the Parliament Buildings as last-minute preparations were rushed to completion yesterday.
As the skies cleared, the 144-year-old Gothic-styled Parliament Buildings got an 11th-hour spruce-up; the 153-year-old Fountain Gardens stood silent but gleaming white, and the former Trafalgar Square, now Heroes Square, was given a wash-down, all in preparation for the pomp, pageantry and ceremony which will occasion the 4 p.m. event.
Workmen were seen busily adding the final touches to the area. They were power-washing Parliament Yard, preparing garden beds and, adding new plants. (HLE)
