Govern­ment House glit­ters

UK Barbados Nation - - NEWS -

GOVERN­MENT HOUSE is lit up like never be­fore, thanks to the Royal Com­mon­wealth So­ci­ety (RCS).

Gover­nor Gen­eral Dame San­dra Ma­son hosted prin­ci­pal Carl­ton Reid and stu­dents from her alma mater, St Cather­ine Pri­mary.

She was joined by David Za­mar Ma­son and Tyler Arthur, who helped dec­o­rate the Christ­mas trees.

This event was held for the first time at Govern­ment House, and RCS pres­i­dent Ch­eryl Belle said she hoped it could be held an­nu­ally. It con­tin­ues the tra­di­tional Christ­mas tree light­ing staged by the So­ci­ety, which is also re­spon­si­ble for dis­plays in In­de­pen­dence Square, Ju­bilee Gar­dens and at the Grant­ley Adams In­ter­na­tional Air­port.

Among those present last Satur­day were im­me­di­ate past pres­i­dent of the so­ci­ety, Dame Maizie Barker-welch; Sen­a­tor Alphea Wig­gins; trustees Ma­jor Louis Belle and Miles Weekes; Canada’s

Ju­dith El­son, re­gional co­or­di­na­tor for the Amer­i­cas; An­drew Hutchin­son; and Kaye Wil­liams.

The trees were dec­o­rated by Ann Rud­der and St Cather­ine old schol­ars.
