The congregation at the Westmoreland Church of the Nazarene joined with others Barbadians in celebrating the island’s 44th anniversary of independence with an awards ceremony in recognition of outstanding residents of the area who contributed to the enhancement of the quality of life in that rural district.

Attorney- at-law, Edmund Hinkson, presents Rawle Eastmond with his award, while Shirley Yarde of the Westmoreland Church of the Nazarene looks on.

Among the awardees were: Parliamentary representative for St James North, Rawle Eastmond, who on January 21 next year celebrates 20 years of unbroken service to that constituency; longstanding resident of the district and permanent secretary in the Ministry of the Civil Service, Carston Simmons; Sir Charles Williams and the Apes Hill Team, who assisted in the beautification of the entrance to the church; longstanding businessman in the Westmoreland district, Millington Drakes and educator, poet and dramatist, George Francis.

In a brief presentation, Eastmond lauded the efforts of the priest in charge, Dr John Yarde, in establishing community outreach programmes. The St James North MP noted that since Dr Yarde assumed office he has been able to win several souls for Christ; while the clergyman further noted that (Eastmond) established a working relationship with him. {COURTESYNeville Clarke}
