Soca on the Beach cancelled
Yello wishes to advise the public that Soca on the Beach scheduled for today Sunday, July 1, has been cancelled.
Though the necessary permits were granted, once the issue of the turtle nesting area was brought to our attention, we immediately consulted with the organisers and key stakeholders to mitigate the potential harm to this environment.
Soca on de Beach was intended to give back to Barbadians as a part of our celebration of local culture during the Crop Over season. We apologise to our patrons and partners for the inconvenience caused.
The preservation of our natural resources and habitats is important to us, as such we are taking the necessary steps to ensure that proper care is used in dismantling the infrastructure.
We will continue to work with all key stakeholder groups to drive educational campaigns that will create awareness on these and other environmental preservation initiatives.
Thank you for your support and understanding. (PR)
