Government is hopeful Rock Hall Freedom Village in St Thomas will eventually receive similar support to Oistins in Christ Church.

Yesterday, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office with Responsibility for Culture, Dr Shantal Munro-Knight and other officials toured the facility, where a stage, amphitheatre and bridge were revealed.

“We have a vision for this Freedom Park that it will be the Oistins for this part of the island. We want to see national heritage tours linking Harrison’s Cave and all of the other environs around here,” she said.

Munro-Knight said the public would officially be allowed to utilise that area on May 15 during a heritage fair. (TG)
