It was a family affair with a Caribbean flavour that cut across all demographics.

That was how President of the Barbados Assocation of Retired Persons (BARP) Marilyn Rice-Bowen described Friday evening's Christmas concert with the Royal Barbados Police Force Band at Hastings Rocks, Christ Church.

Heartened by the turnout of BARP members and their families, Rice-Bowen said she was happy that those who attended had a good time and stayed even after the concert had ended.

Members of the band entertained the crowd with a medley of Christmas Carols, some of which they sang along to.

"It was encouraging to see so many people and people of all demographics. We had grannies with their grand children, children with their parents all having a good time," she said.

"There was a Caribbean flavour to the event and that made it even more special," she added. (CM)
