NSC SPONSORING SPORTS CAVALCADES AND LECTURE – EMPHASIS ON USING NIGHT LIGHTS FOR EVENINGS
A celebration with a difference – that’s how the National Sports Council (NSC) is planning to further commemorate its 30th anniversary over the next six weeks.
During that time, a series of public events will be put on to draw attention to the work of the NSC.
Beginning Friday, May 30, there will be a sports cavalcade at Checker Hall, St. Lucy, while another will be staged on Friday, June 20, at Dover, Christ Church. These will both begin at 7:00 each evening with an aerobics session, followed by basketball, cricket, football, netball and road tennis games.
A lecture/discussion, which looks at development through sports, will be held on Tuesday, June 10, at the Frank Collymore Hall, starting at 7:00 p.m. Persons attending are asked to be seated by 6:45 p.m.
Activities to celebrate the NSC?s milestone started with a church service last month at the St. Barnabas Church, and will culminate with an awards and dinner for staff at the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex in June.
The NSC was established on February 1, 1978, and its functions are to stimulate and facilitate the development of sport in Barbados; to develop, maintain and manage sporting facilities provided by Government for public use; and to administer the funds of the Council and all government grants allotted to sporting organisations.In addition, the Council?s aim is to develop an active, healthy and fit society through sports and physical activities in line with the overall efforts of the Government in nation building.
