Full Independence celebration Activities Announced

Amongst the highlights will be the opening of the new National Heroes Park, which is being constructed close to the nation’s international airport, named after its first National Hero, Robert Bradshaw.

This will be the first public facility to be created to honour the five citizens who have been given the honour of being named National Hero. These, in addition to Bradshaw, are C.A. Paul Southwell, Joseph N France, Dr. Simeon Daniel and the lone living Hero, Sir Kennedy Simmonds, who was the country’s first Prime Minister and the leader who ushered in independence on 19th September, 1983.

Other major events include the usual military parade on Independence Day, The Prime Minister’s Lecture Series, school visits, football and cricket matches and the Thanksgiving Church Service.
