Lashley stated “Norman Centre is proud of its long heritage in Bridgetown, and that in its 40th year is still an iconic part of our city centre.  It is our privilege to host the Commemorative Broken Trident as part of the cultural celebrations of Barbados’ 50th Anniversary and we hope to continue to always be recognized as intrinsic to Bridgetown.

The Barbados Defense Force Zouave Band entertained visitors, customers and those keen to be a part of this moment of history.

Following a multi-million dollar refurbishment in 2012, Norman Centre now offers its customers and tenants a new and experiential level of shopping, which is a relaxed, clean and modern with an edgy and artistic vibe.

Lashley noted, “We have created a space for young professionals and corporate Bridgetown to visit, have lunch, meet, entertain guests and enjoy end-of-week, after work, social and networking time.”

“We really felt that for such a significant symbolic moment we should honour it by paying homage to our culture and featuring elements that represent our history as well as modern day Barbadiana.  The aim of Norman Centre is to always create an air of comfort and casual sophistication so we really were excited to be asked to host the Commemorative Broken Trident on the last day it will be in the parish of St. Michael.”
